Area of circle A = pi*r^2

increase r by 10%
new area is: pi*(1.1r)^2 = 1.21*pi*r^2

thus area is increased by 21%

OA is B and here is the explanation:

The formula for the radius of the original circle is

= Pi(radius2)

The formula for the new radius is

= Pi((1.1 * radius)2)
= Pi(1.21 * radius2)

Thus, the area of the circle is increased by 21%.
