Area of circle is\(\pi\)\(*r^2\)
\((\pi)*r^2= 25(\pi)\)
therefore, \(r=5\)

the equilateral triangle has 2 of its sides as radii
hence, side = \(r=5\)
there fore \(area=\frac{(\sqrt[2]{3})}{4}*5^2\)
= \(\frac{25\sqrt{3}}{4}\)

Answer: B

\(πr^2 = 25π\)

Or, \(r = 5\)

Thus, sides of the triangle are 5

Hence area of the equilateral triangle is \(\frac{25√3}{4}\) , ANswer must be (B)
