Let the center of the circle be O. Then OQ and OR will be the radii. Now as triangle OQR is right angle then QR will be its hypotenuse hence QR^2=(\frac{8}{\sqrt{2}})^2=r^2+r^2 --> 2r^2=32 --> r^2=16 --> area=\pi{r^2}=16\pi.

Line joining Q n R makes right isoscelleous(45, 45, 90) triangle where hypotenus = 8/sqrt2

Thus radius = 8/(sqrt2 * sqrt2) = 4

Area = pie*r^2 = 16 pie
