The formula that gives the circumference of a circle is:

Circumference = `pi` *2r, where r represents the radius of th circle.

We'll replace the known values within the formula of circumference:

40 = `pi` *2r

r = 40/2`pi`

r = 20/`pi`

We'll take `pi` = 3.14

r = 20/3.14

r = 6.36 cm

The requested radius of the circle is of 6.36 cm.
