# Maximum area of rectangle inscribed in an equilateral triangle

Given an integer **A**, which denotes the side of an equilateral triangle, the task is to find the maximum area of the rectangle that can be inscribed in the triangle.**Examples:**

Input:A = 10Output:21.65Explanation:

Maximum area of rectangle inscribed in an equilateral triangle of side 10 is 21.65.Input:A = 12Output:31.176Explanation:

Maximum area of rectangle inscribed in an equilateral triangle of side 12 is 31.176.

**Approach:** The idea is to use the fact that interior angles of an equilateral triangle is 60^{o}. Then, Draw the perpendicular from one of the side of the triangle and compute the sides of the rectangle with the help of below formulae

The length of Rectangle = (Side of Equilateral Triangle)/2

The breadth of Rectangle = sqrt(3) * (Side of Equilateral Triangle)/4

Then, Maximum area of the rectangle will be

Below is the implementation of the above approach:
