For square A the area be a^2.

Now for circle radius be a/2 or diameter be d = a.

For inner square the diagonal be d. area will be d^2/2.

our ratio be 2:1.

Lets take outer square to be 4x4 = area 16
circle diameter = 4
hence inner square diagonal = 4
we know it is 90 45 45. so sides are 1:1:sqrt(2)
so inner square area is (4/sqrt(2))*(4/sqrt(2)) = 16/2 = 8

Hence 2:1
