Homework Help: math (geometry)

Posted by Emily on Sunday, March 16, 2008 at 4:51pm.

It says:
Find the area of a rectangle with length 12 inscribed in a circle with radius 7.5.

I know when they're talking about a radius with a figure, they're talking about the length between the center of the circle to a corner of the figure. But that usually works only with a regular figure, and a rectangle isn't one.

Does anyone have any ideas on how to solve it?
