i need help finding an area of a rectangle

### Question Description

I’m stuck on a Mathematics question and need an explanation.

A rectangle is inscribed in a circle of radius 5 cm. The base of the rectangle is 8 cm. What is the area of the rectangle? Student has agreed that all tutoring, explanations, and answers provided by the tutor will be used to help in the learning process and in accordance with Studypool's honor code & terms of service. The diagonal of the rectangle = the diameter of the circle =10 cm

Base of the rectangle = 8 cm

Height of the rectangle = sqrt(10^2-8^2)=sqrt(100-64)=sqrt(36)=6

Area of the rectangle = 8*6 = 48 sq. cm Boston College Anonymous
