(A) .36%
(B) 3.6%
(C) 6%
(D) 12.36%
(E) 36%

Area of the Circle = \(πr^2\)

So, Percentage change in area of the Circle is 6 + 6 +6*6/100 = 12.36%

Thus, correct answer will be (D) 12.36%

Increase in area =
((scale factor)\(^2\) - 1) * 100

6 percent increase = 1.06 scale factor

(1.06)\(^2\) = 1.1236
(1.1236 - 1) * 100 =
(.1236 * 100) = 12.36 percent

area of the circle is pi*r^2
so percentage increase equal to (1.06)^2 = 12.36 %

We can let the original area = πr^2; thus, the new area is π(1.06r)^2 = π(1.1236)r^2.

We use the percent increase formula: (New - Old)/Old x 100. Thus, the area is increased by:

[π(1.1236)r^2 - πr^2]/πr^2 x 100

[0.01236πr^2/]/πr^2 x 100 = 12.36%

Answer: D
