A circle C is drawn around a square S such that the sides of the square become the four chords of the circle. What is the area of square S?

(1) Had a circle been drawn such that the four sides of square S were tangents to the circle, the area of the circle would be 30 square centimetres less than the area of circle C

(2) Had a circle been drawn with the diagonal of square S as its radius, the area of the circle have been 180 square centimetres more than the area of circle C

Let side of the square =a

Radius of the circle C= 1/2* diagonal of square= \(\frac{1}{2}*\sqrt{2}a\)

Area of circle C= \(pi*\frac{a^2}{2}\)

Statement 1-

Had a circle been drawn such that the four sides of square S were tangents to the circle, it's radius would have half of the side of the square.

(\(pi*\frac{a^2}{2}\)) - (\(pi*\frac{a^2}{4}\)) = 30

We can find a^2.

Sufficient

Statement 2-

(\(pi*2*a^2\)) - (\(pi*\frac{a^2}{2}\))= 180

We can find a^2.

Sufficient
