# 2003 AMC 12A Problems/Problem 14

Since the area of square ABCD is 16, the side length must be 4. Thus, the side length of triangle AKB is 4, and the height of AKB, and thus DMC, is $2\sqrt{3}$.

The diagonal of the square KNMC will then be $4+4\sqrt{3}$. From here there are 2 ways to proceed:

First: Since the diagonal is $4+4\sqrt{3}$, the side length is $\frac{4+4\sqrt{3}}{\sqrt{2}}$, and the area is thus $\frac{16+48+32\sqrt{3}}{2}=32+16\sqrt{3}$.

Second: Since a square is a rhombus, the area of the square is $\frac{d_1d_2}{2}$, where $d_1$ and $d_2$ are the diagonals of the rhombus. Since the diagonal is $4+4\sqrt{3}$, the area is $\frac{(4+4\sqrt{3})^2}{2}=32+16\sqrt{3}$.

Either way, our answer is $\boxed{D}$.
