In the Quadilateral(OABC), since Ang(O),Ang(B), and Ang(C) are Right angles, Ang(A) also must be right angle.
(Since sum of interior angles of a Quadilateral = (n-2) * 180 where n = number of sides)


Hence we could say, Quadilateral(OABC) is a Rectangle.

Using the properties of Rectangle, AC = OB = 6

Hence Area of the Circle = Pi* OB^2=
