Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1\[ YZ = 2\]\[WZ= \frac{side length}{2} = \frac{2}{2} = 1\]Now use Pythagoras theorem in triangle YWZ to find YW. According to the figure, you can see that \[YW = 2\times radius\]So once you have YW, you can find the radius and then the area of the circle using\[Area = \pi\times radius^2\]
