Given a regular hexagon of side length 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: 28.3287

Input: a = 9
Output: 91.7848

 

 

Approach: As the side of the square inscribed within a hexagon is x = 1.268a. Please refer Largest Square that can be inscribed within a hexagon. 
Also, in the reuleaux triangle, h = x = 1.268a
So, Area of the reuleaux triangle, A = 0.70477*h^2 = 0.70477*(1.268a)^2.
Below is the implementation of the above approach: 
 

C++




// C++ Program to find the biggest Reuleaux triangle
// inscribed within in a square which in turn
// is inscribed within a hexagon
#include <bits/stdc++.h>
using namespace std;
 
// Function to find the biggest reuleaux triangle
float Area(float a)
{
 
    // side cannot be negative
    if (a < 0)
        return -1;
 
    // height of the reuleaux triangle
    float h = 1.268 * a;
 
    // area of the reuleaux triangle
    float A = 0.70477 * pow(h, 2);
 
    return A;
}
 
// Driver code
int main()
{
    float a = 5;
    cout << Area(a) << endl;
 
    return 0;
}

Java




// Java Program to find the biggest Reuleaux triangle
// inscribed within in a square which in turn
// is inscribed within a hexagon
 
import java.io.*;
 
class GFG
{
 
// Function to find the biggest reuleaux triangle
static float Area(float a)
{
 
    // side cannot be negative
    if (a < 0)
        return -1;
 
    // height of the reuleaux triangle
    float h =(float) 1.268 * a;
 
    // area of the reuleaux triangle
    float A = (float)(0.70477 * Math.pow(h, 2));
 
    return A;
}
 
    // Driver code
    public static void main (String[] args)
    {
        float a = 5;
    System.out.println( Area(a));
    }
}
