(A) \(2 : \sqrt{(2\pi)}\)
(B) \(1 : 2\sqrt{\pi}\)
(C) \(2\sqrt{\pi} : \sqrt{2}\)
(D) \(1 : \sqrt{2}\)
(E) \(1 : 2\pi\)

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.

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

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

Hence A

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

(D) \(1 : \sqrt{2}\)
(E) \(1 : 2\pi\)


Let us denote the length of a side of the square by s and the radius of the circle by r.

We can create the equation:

πr^2 = s^2

r√π = s

Since the side of the square s = r√π, the diagonal of the square is r√π x √2 = r√(2π).

The diameter of the circle is 2r. Thus, the ratio of the diameter of the circle to the diagonal of the square is:

2r/[r√(2π)] = 2/√(2π)

Answer: A
