Both statements are sufficient
(1) we get a s:s:s(rt.2) ratio when we cut through the diagonal
now s(rt.2) =8 —> s=4(rt.2), we can find area (Sufficient)
(2) we can find area (Sufficient)

Hi minustark,

When posting GMAT practice questions, you will likely receive more of a response if you post the question to the specific sub-forum. For example, the Data Sufficiency sub-forum can be found here:

GMAT assassins aren't born, they're made,
