One diagonal of a c… - QuestionCove
OpenStudy (anonymous):

One diagonal of a cyclic quadrilateral coincides with a diameter of a circle whose area is 36 pi cm^2. If the other diagonal which measures 8 cm meets the first diagonal at the right angles,find the area of the quadrilateral. Please help me :(

thank youu in advance!!! you are an angel! haha =)))

Pi * r^2 = 36*Pi r^2 = 36 r = 6 now diameter = 2*r so diameter = 2*6 = 12

now use this theorem: if a quadrilateral has perpendicular diagonals, d1 and d2, then area=(d1 x d2)/2 Area = ( 12 x 8 ) / 2 = 48
