Determine the area of a bicentric quadrilateral where two opposite sides measure 25 units and 4 units, respectively, and the other two extended sides intersect perpendicularly.

Circles converge tight,

Opposite lines stretch and meet—

Area waits, still.

Hints, Key Term | Description |

Bicentric Quadrilateral | A quadrilateral that has both an inscribed circle and a circumscribed circle. Such a quadrilateral is both cyclic and tangential. |

Inscribed Circle | A circle that touches all four sides of a quadrilateral from the inside. In a bicentric quadrilateral, this circle is perfectly tangent to each side. |

Circumscribed Circle | A circle that passes through all four vertices of a quadrilateral. For a quadrilateral to be bicentric, it must also have an inscribed circle. |

Cyclic Quadrilateral | A quadrilateral with all its vertices lying on a single circumscribed circle. Opposite angles of a cyclic quadrilateral sum to 180 degrees. |

Tangential Quadrilateral | A quadrilateral that has an inscribed circle touching all four sides. In a bicentric quadrilateral, the sum of the lengths of opposite sides is equal. |

Extended Sides | When the sides of a quadrilateral are prolonged beyond their endpoints. In this problem, two opposite sides are extended until they intersect perpendicularly. |

Intersect Perpendicularly | The condition where two lines or sides meet at a 90 degrees angle. In this problem, the extended sides of the quadrilateral meet perpendicularly. |

Area of Tangential Quadrilateral | The area of a tangential quadrilateral can be calculated by multiplying the inradius (the radius of the inscribed circle) by the semiperimeter (half the sum of all side lengths) of the quadrilateral. |
