Solution

## The correct option is A As AB and CD are two chords that intersect at P, AP ∗ PB = CP ∗ PD 6∗4=CP∗3⇒CP=8 From centre O draw OM ⊥ AB and ON ⊥ CD We get AM = MB = 5 (perpendicular from center bisects the chord) Therefore MP = 1, ON = 1, CD = 11 CN = ND = 5.5 (perpendicular from centre bisects the chord) ON2+CN2+OC2 1+(5.5)2=r2 Area of circle = πr2=π(1+(5.5)2)=125π4
