In the figure above, ABCD and CEFG are squares. If the area of CEFG is 36, what is the area of ABCD?

area of CEFG is 36, implies S^2 = 36
S = 6
triangle CDE is right angled isosceles triangle, Since CE (S) = 6 implies CD and DE = \(3\sqrt{2}\) (from Pythagorean theorem)
area of ABCD = \(s^2 = (3\sqrt{2})^2\) = 18

Option D is correct

side of CEFG = 6
45:45:90
x:x:xsqrt2
x sqrt2 = 6
x= 3 sqrt 2
area = (3 sqrt 2)^2 = 18 IMO D
