Area of largest Circle that can be inscribed in a SemiCircle

Given a semicircle with radius **R**, the task is to find the area of the largest circle that can be inscribed in the semicircle.**Examples:**

Input:R = 2Output:3.14Input:R = 8Output:50.24

**Approach**: Let **R** be the radius of the semicircle

- For Largest circle that can be inscribed in this semicircle, the diameter of the circle must be equal to the radius of the semi-circle.

- So, if the radius of the semi-circle is
**R**, then the diameter of the largest inscribed circle will be**R**. - Hence the radius of the inscribed circle must be
**R/2** - Therefore the area of the largest circle will be

Area of circle = pi*Radius^{2}= pi*(R/2)^{2}since the radius of largest circle is R/2 where R is the radius of the semicircle

Below is the implementation of the above approach:
