# Biggest Reuleaux Triangle within a Square which is inscribed within a Circle

Given here is a circle 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:r = 6Output:50.7434Input:r = 11Output:170.554

**Approach**: From the figure, it is very clear that, if the side of the square is **a**, then

a√2 = 2r

a = √2r

Also, in reuleaux triangle, **h = a = √2r**, please refer Biggest Reuleaux Triangle within A Sqaure.

So, Area of the Reuleaux Triangle is, **A = 0.70477*h^2 = 0.70477*2*r^2**
