The area of a triangle is S = 1/2 * h * a.

Let's a = center, vertex 1 = 1
Now, we can move vertex 2 along a circle and find that h is maximum only if vertex 2 - center - vertex 1 angle is a right angle. So, S = 1/2 * 1 * 1 = 1/2

triangle inscribed in a semicircle will be a right triangle, in this case a right isoceles a=s^2/2. s= radius of circle so s^2/2= 1/2
