# Largest ellipse that can be inscribed within a rectangle which in turn is inscribed within a semicircle

Given here is a semicircle of radius r, which inscribes a rectangle which in turn inscribes an ellipse. The task is to find the area of this largest ellipse.

Examples:

```Input: r = 5
Output: 19.625

Input: r = 11
Output: 94.985
``` Approach:

1. Let the, length of the rectangle = l and breadth of the rectangle = b
2. Let, the length of the major axis of the ellipse = 2x and, the length of the minor axis of the ellipse = 2y
3. As we know, length and breadth of the largest rectangle inside a semicircle are r/√2 and √2r(Please refer here)
4. Also, Area of the ellipse within the rectangle = (π*l*b)/4 = (πr^2/4)

Below is the implementation of above approach:

## C++

 `// C++ Program to find the biggest ellipse ` `// which can be inscribed within a rectangle ` `// which in turn is inscribed within a semicircle ` ` `  `#include ` `using` `namespace` `std; ` ` `  `// Function to find the area ` `// of the biggest ellipse ` `float` `ellipsearea(``float` `r) ` `{ ` ` `  `    ``// the radius cannot be negative ` `    ``if` `(r < 0) ` `        ``return` `-1; ` ` `  `    ``// area of the ellipse ` `    ``float` `a = (3.14 * r * r) / 4; ` ` `  `    ``return` `a; ` `} ` ` `  `// Driver code ` `int` `main() ` `{ ` `    ``float` `r = 5; ` `    ``cout << ellipsearea(r) << endl; ` `    ``return` `0; ` `} `

## Java
