IMO A

diameter 20,
radius= 10
πr^2 = 100π
area = 100π
side = \(\sqrt{100\pi}\)
diagonal = \(Side * \sqrt{2} = 10\sqrt{(2\pi)}\)

ratio
\(20 : 10\sqrt{(2\pi)}\)
= \(2 : \sqrt{(2\pi)}\)

(A) 2 : √(2)
(B) 1 : 2√
(C) 2√ : √2
(D) 1 : √2
(E) 1 : 2


\(area_{circle}=\pi{\frac{diameter^2}{4}}=area_{square}=\frac{diagonal^2}{2}\);

\(\pi{\frac{diameter^2}{4}}=\frac{diagonal^2}{2}\);

\(\frac{diameter^2}{diagonal^2}=\frac{2}{\pi}\);

\(\frac{diameter}{diagonal}=\frac{\sqrt{2}}{\sqrt{\pi}}=\frac{2}{\sqrt{2\pi}}\).

Answer: A.

Pleas format the answers properly.

(A) 2 : √(2π)
(B) 1 : 2√π
(C) 2√π : √2
(D) 1 : √2
(E) 1 : 2π


\(\pi r^2 = a^2\)

\(\frac{r}{a} = \frac{1}{\sqrt{\pi}}\)

\(\frac{2r}{\sqrt{2}a} = \frac{2}{\sqrt{2\pi}}\)

Hence A

A circle and a square have the same area. What is the ratio [#permalink] New post 06 Jan 2015, 21:48
Answer = A

Let the area of circle = area of square = 1

\(\pi r^2 = 1\)

\(r = \frac{1}{\sqrt{\pi}}\)

2r = diameter \(= \frac{2}{\sqrt{\pi}}\)

Side of square = 1

Diagonal \(= \sqrt{2}\)

Ratio \(= \frac{2}{\sqrt{2*\pi}}\)
