# Biggest Reuleaux Triangle inscribed within a square which is inscribed within a hexagon

• Last Updated : 17 Mar, 2021

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:
