similar triangles ac=ob= 6

area = pi r^2 = 36 pi

(B) imo

Quick solution: OABC is either a rectangle or a square.* Either way, diagonal lengths are equal.

Mentally draw another diagonal, from O to B.
AC = OB = radius = 6

Area of circle = \(\pi r^2 = 36\pi\)

Answer B

*Three right angles = two sets of parallel and perpendicular lines with 4 right angles => the figure is a rectangle or a square. OR:

The figure OABC is a parallelogram with four right angles.
Three right angles are indicated. Their sum = 270°.
Quadrilateral's internal angles sum to 360°, and (360°-270°) = 90° = fourth angle. Four right angles in a quadrilateral create two sets of parallel and perpendicular lines. The figure is a square or a rectangle.

didn't think much
suppose AC is r. then the area is 36pi. C,D, E are out right away.
even if the OC was the r, then OC would be equal to 3sqrt(3), and area would be 27. A is out
B is left
I didn't consider the OB to be equal to AC...i guess I just missed it, and it seemed easier for me to go with my POE method.
