C.

Area of equilateral triangle S=[a^2*3^1/2]/4 so a=6

a- side of triangle. R- raduis of circumscribed circle.

R=a/(3^1/2) so R=2*3^1/2 and Pi*R^2=12*Pi.

That is right.

Radius of circumcircle = a/sqrt(3); a = side of triangle
Radius of incircle = [sqrt(3)*a]/6; a = side of triangle

These formulas are valid for equilateral triangles only!

Is there an easier way to do this? I would think the gmat doesn't want to test the forumula of a circumcircle.
