Given an ellipse with major axis length and minor axis **2a** & **2b** respectively 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, b = 4Output:0.0722389Input:a = 7, b = 11Output:0.0202076

**Approach**: As, the side of the square inscribed within an ellipse is, **x = √(a^2 + b^2)/ab.** Please refer Area of the Largest square that can be inscribed in an ellipse.

Also, in the reuleaux triangle, **h = x = √(a^2 + b^2)/ab**.

So, Area of the reuleaux triangle, **A = 0.70477*h^2 = 0.70477*((a^2 + b^2)/a^2b^2)**.

Below is the implementation of the above approach:
