3. The ares of the largest triangle inscribed in a semi-circle of radius r is r2.
4. The area of the largest circle that can be drawn in a square of side X is π(x/2)2.
5. The area of a circle circumscribed in an equuilateral triangle of side X is π/3 X2;
6. The area of a circle inscribed in an equuilateral triangle of side X is π/12 x2.
7. If the area of a square is X Sq.Cm. then area of the circle formed by the same perimeter is 4X/π Cm3.
8. Relation between Circumference (C) and Area (A) of a circle is C2 = 4πA
9. An equilateral triangle is circumscribed by a circle and another circle is inscribed in that triangle.
Then the ratio of the areas of the two circles is 4 : 1.
