# Biggest Reuleaux Triangle inscribed within a Square inscribed in an equilateral triangle

Given here is an equilateral triangle of sidelength a 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 : a = 5
Output : 3.79335

Input : a = 9
Output : 12.2905
```

## Recommended: Please try your approach on {IDE} first, before moving on to the solution. Approach: We know that the side of the square inscribed within an equilateral triangle of side length is, x = 0.464*a (Please refer here).

Also, in the reuleaux triangle, h = x.

```A = 0.70477*h2
= 0.70477*(0.464*a)2
```

Below is the implementation of the above approach:
