## Problem 5

The area of a circle whose circumference is $24\pi$ is $k\pi$. What is the value of $k$?

$\mathrm{(A)}\ 6 \qquad \mathrm{(B)}\ 12 \qquad \mathrm{(C)}\ 24 \qquad \mathrm{(D)}\ 36 \qquad \mathrm{(E)}\ 144$

## Solution

If the circumference of a circle is $24\pi$, the radius would be $12$. Since the area of a circle is $\pi r^2$, the area is $144\pi$. The answer is $\boxed{E}$.
