# Area of a circle inscribed in a rectangle which is inscribed in a semicircle

Given a semicircle with radius **R**, which inscribes a rectangle of length **L** and breadth **B**, which in turn inscribes a circle of radius **r**. The task is to find the area of the circle with radius r.

**Examples:**

Input : R = 2 Output : 1.57 Input : R = 5 Output : 9.8125

**Approach**:

We know the biggest rectangle that can be inscribed within the semicircle has, length,

l=√2R/2&

breadth,b=R/√2(Please refer)

Also, the biggest circle that can be inscribed within the rectangle has radius,r=b/2=R/2√2(Please refer)

So area of the circle,A=π*r^2=π(R/2√2)^2
