# Largest sphere that can be inscribed within a cube which is in turn inscribed within a right circular cone

Given here is a right circular cone of radius **r** and perpendicular height **h**, which is inscribed in a cube which in turn is inscribed in a sphere, the task is to find the radius of the sphere.

**Examples:**

Input:h = 5, r = 6Output:1.57306Input:h = 8, r = 11Output:2.64156

**Approach**:

- Let the side of the cube =
**a** - Let the radius of the sphere =
**R** - We know,
**a=h*r√2/(h+√2*r)**(Please refer here) - Also,
**R=a/2**(Please refer here) - So,
**R = (h*r√2/(h+√2*r))/2**

Below is the implementation of the above approach:

## C++
