Area = 625 = \({side}^2\) = Side = 25.

Diagonal of a square is Side\(\sqrt{2}\) = 25\(\sqrt{2}\)

Diagonal of a square is the diameter of the circle = 25\(\sqrt{2}\)

Radius becomes 25\(\sqrt{2}\)/2.

Area = pi\(r^2\) = 625*2*pi/4 = 625/2 * pi

A is the answer.

A. \(\frac{625}{2} \pi\)

B. 625

C. \(125\pi\)

D. \(\frac{2500}{\pi}\)

E. \(625\pi\)



Since the length of wire will remain same,

Perimeter of square = Perimeter of circle

Area of square= 625 m2
=> Side= 25 m
=> Perimeter=4* side= 100

For circle:
2*pi*r=100
r=50/pi

Area= pi*r*r
= 2500/pi

Hence the answer is D

Damn, I misunderstood the question. :|
