Since the area of the triangle is 25π(which is \(π * radius^2\)),
the radius of the circle can be calculated as follows :
\(π * radius^2 = 25π = > radius = \sqrt{25} = 5\)

Therefore, the diameter, which is twice the radius, is 10(Option B)

\(πr^2 = 25π\)

Or, \(r^2 = 25\)

So, \(r = 5\)

Thus, diameter will be (B) 10 , (answer )
