# Area of a square inscribed in a circle which is inscribed in an equilateral triangle

Given here is an equilateral triangle with side length **a**, which inscribes a circle, which in turn inscribes a square. The task is to find the area of this square.

**Examples:**

Input: a = 6 Output: 1 Input: a = 10 Output: 0.527046

**Approach**:

let

rbe the radius of circle,

hence it is the inradius of equilateral triangle, sor = a /(2 * √3)

diagonal of square,d= diameter of circle =2 * r = a/ √3

So, area of square,A = 0.5 * d * d

henceA = (1/2) * (a^2) / (3) = (a^2/6)

Below is the implementation of the above approach:

## C++

`// C++ Program to find the area of the square ` `// inscribed within the circle which in turn ` `// is inscribed in an equilateral triangle ` `#include <bits/stdc++.h> ` `using` `namespace` `std; ` ` ` `// Function to find the area of the square ` `float` `area(` `float` `a) ` `{ ` ` ` ` ` `// a cannot be negative ` ` ` `if` `(a < 0) ` ` ` `return` `-1; ` ` ` ` ` `// area of the square ` ` ` `float` `area = ` `sqrt` `(a) / 6; ` ` ` ` ` `return` `area; ` `} ` ` ` `// Driver code ` `int` `main() ` `{ ` ` ` `float` `a = 10; ` ` ` `cout << area(a) << endl; ` ` ` `return` `0; ` `} ` |
