What is the area of circle O above?

(A) 24π
(B) 36π
(C) 48π
(D) 64π
(E) 72π

Notice that ABCO is a rectangle --> diagonal AC = diagonal OB = 6.

Since OB is the radius of the circle, then the area is $$\pi{r^2}=36\pi$$.

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=

Pi * 6^2=36Pi
