Solution

Given
In this question, we are given that
• On the xy-plane, a circle has center (2,-1), and the point (-3,3) lies along the circle’s circumference

To find
We need to determine
• The square-unit area of the circle

Approach and Working out
The radius of the circle r = the distance between (2, -1) and (-3, 3) = $$\sqrt{5^2 + 4^2} = \sqrt{41}$$
• Hence, $$r^2 = 41$$
• Therefore, area of the circle = $$πr^2 = 41π$$

Thus, option C is the correct answer.

radius of the circle = distance b/w (2,-1) and (-3,3) = $$\sqrt{{41}}$$

so the area of the circle =$$\pi$$$$r^2$$ = 41$$\pi$$
