# The biggest possible circle that can be inscribed in a rectangle

Given a rectangle of length l & breadth b, we have to find the largest cricle that can be inscribed in the rectangle.
Examples:

```Input  : l = 4, b = 8
Output : 12.56

Input  : l = 16 b = 6
Output : 28.26
```

## Recommended: Please try your approach on {IDE} first, before moving on to the solution.

From the figure, we can see, the biggest circle that could be inscribed in the rectangle will have radius always equal to the half of the shorter side of the rectangle. So from the figure,

Area, A = π * (r^2)
