# Area of square Circumscribed by Circle

Given the radius(r) of circle then find the area of square which is Circumscribed by circle.

Examples:

Input : r = 3 Output :Area of square = 18 Input :r = 6 Output :Area of square = 72

All four sides of a square are of equal length and all four angles are 90 degree. The circle is circumscribed on a given square shown by a shaded region in the below diagram.

**Properties of Circumscribed circle are as follows:**

- The center of the circumcircle is the point where the two diagonals of a square meet.
- Circumscribed circle of a square is made through the four vertices of a square.
- The radius of a circumcircle of a square is equal to the radius of a square.

Formula used to calculate the area of circumscribed square is:

2 * r^{2}

where, r is the radius of the circle in which a square is circumscribed by circle.

How does this formula work?Assume diagonal of square is d and length of side is a.

We know from the Pythagoras Theorem, the diagonal of a

square is √(2) times the length of a side.

i.e d^{2}= a^{2}+ a^{2}

d = 2 * a^{2}

d = √(2) * a

Now,

a = d / √2and We know diagonal of square that are Circumscribed by

Circle is equal to Diameter of circle.

so Area of square = a * a

= d / √(2) * d / √(2)

= d^{2}/ 2

= ( 2 * r )^{2}/ 2 ( We know d = 2 * r )

=2 * r^{2}
