Lastly, <math>\Delta KBC</math> is a right triangle. We see that <math>\angle JBA + \angle ABC + \angle CBK + \angle KBJ = 360^{\circ} \rightarrow 90^{\circ} + 120^{\circ} + \angle CBK + 60^{\circ} = 360^{\circ} \rightarrow \angle CBK = 90^{\circ}</math>, so <math>\Delta KBC</math> is a right triangle with legs <math>3 \sqrt{2}</math> and <math>4 \sqrt{2}</math>. Now, its area is <math>\dfrac{3 \sqrt{2} \cdot 4 \sqrt{2}}{2} = \dfrac{24}{2} = \boxed{\textbf{(C)}~12}</math>. | Lastly, <math>\Delta KBC</math> is a right triangle.
