What is the area of the shaded region above, if ABCD is a square and line segment AB is a diameter of the circle with center O? (1) The radius of the circle with center O is 4. (2) The area of triangle ADC is 32. OE To find area of shaded region, you need to find area of triangle ACD, and subtract area of unshaded region inside this triangle from it. To find area of unshaded region, you need to first draw in a line perpendicular to diameter AB of circle from center O to diagonal AC. Call this point E. This point is also one of endpoints of arc AFE. Attachment: File comment: ABCD2

Arc AFE and radii OA and OE bound a sector of circle O: this sector is one quarter of entire area of circle. Now, if you take area of small triangle AEO, and subtract this area from area of sector OAFE, then you have area of unshaded portion of triangle ADC. So, to solve this question, you need to find area of triangle ADC, one quarter of area of circle O, and area of small triangle AEO. To find these three areas, you need radius of circle, or length of one side of square. (1): This is exactly what we need; once we have radius of circle we can find diameter of circle which is same as a side of square and also same as each leg of right triangle ADC. So you can, with this information, solve for different areas necessary, and then solve for area of shaded region. Sufficient. (2): able to find length of height and width (which are equal to each other) of triangle ADC. Let's say that both base and height of triangle ADC = x. 32 = (½)x^2 → x = 8 You have leg lengths (which are equal) of isosceles right triangle ADC; this means that you also have diameter of circle → radius. Sufficient

We have "fixed" circle and square. We can find anything there. Sufficient. (2) The area of triangle ADC is 32 > 1/2*AD^2=32 > AD=8 > AD = diameter = 8. The same info as above. Sufficient. Answer: D.

I knew that Statement 1 and 2 gave the same information, but couldn't figure out how to find the white portion in TriangleADC Thanks

We can solve because we know the radius of the circle (so we know everything about it) and we know the side of the square (so we know everything about it). If still interested in solving you can check under the spoiler in the initial post.

D
One subtle hint....both the options A and B pointing towards same conclusion.....so can be either D or E....
Like the solution provided in spoiler....either is enough
