# Biggest Reuleaux Triangle inscirbed within a square inscribed in a semicircle

Given here is a semicircle of radius **r** which inscribes a square which in turn inscribes a reuleaux triangle. The task is to find the maximum possible area of this reuleaux triangle.

**Examples:**

Input : x = 5Output : 14.0954Input : x = 8Output : 36.0842

**Approach**:We know, the side of the square inscribed within a semicircle is, **a = 2r/√5**. (Please refer here)

Also, in the reuleaux triangle, **x = a**.

So, **x = 2*r/√5**

So, Area of Reuleaux Triangle:

A = 0.70477*x^2 = 0.70477*(r^2/5)

Below is the implementation of the above approach:
