Can anyone figure out why these two values are not compatible?
Yes - A2 obviously should have dimension "area" but its just a length.
A1*x1 is a volume but A2*x2 is just an area - you can't add a volume and an area.
Possibly you meant r^2 in the formula for A2 (area of a circle with diameter r ?)
You can omit all those unnecessary parentheses and you should use the built-in constant pi instead of your 3.141 (badly rounded anyway).
Please attach your Mathcad Prime worksheet to the message.

I had this completed awhile ago, but you are correct I did forget the r^2. Still trying to get the hang of this program. I did also realize the constant pi in the toolbar.
I do appreciate the advice
