The side length of a square inscribed in a circle is 2. What is the area of the circle?

(A) \(\pi\)

(B) \(\sqrt{2} \pi\)

(C) \(2\pi\)

(D) \(2 \sqrt{2} \pi\)

(E) \(\pi^2\)



Area of the square = 2^2 = 4

Another way to find out area of the square = (1/2)*\(d^2\).

(1/2)\(d^2\) = 4


d = \(\sqrt{8}\)


Diameter =\(\sqrt{8}\)


Area of the circle = pie * \(r^2\)

= pie* \(((\sqrt{8})/2)^2\)
= 2 pie.


The best answer is C.
