Area of circle \(pi*r^2 = 64\) ---> R = 8


if Radius = 8 then diametr is 16


length of diametre of circle is \(4k-k=16\) ---> \(3k =16\) ---> k =\(\frac{16}{3}\)

IMO: D :)

\(64*pi = r^2 *pi\)

r = 8

radius = 3k - 1.5k = 1.5k

radius = \(1.5k = \frac{3}{2}* k\)

\(\frac{3}{2} * k = 8\)

\(k = \frac{16}{3}\)

Answer choice D

As per the given figure.... the diameter of the cicle = \(4k-k=3k\)
Hence, the \(radius(r) = \frac{3k}{2}\)
Thus the area of the circle = \(r^2 * π = 64π\)
or , \(r^2 = 64\)
or , \(r = 8\)
or \(\frac{3k}{2} = 8\)
or \(k =\frac{8*2}{3} = \frac{16}{3}\)............Ans D
