Area of the circle via diamter = P*d^2/4
Area of square = a^2
P*d^2/4=a^2
P^1/2 / 2 = a/d
Answer B

\(a^2 = πr^2\)

\(a = \sqrt{π}r\)

So, \(a : r\) = \(\sqrt{π}\)

Now, \(a : 2r = \frac{√π}{2}\)

Or, \(a : d = \frac{√π}{2}\), answer will be (B)

(A) √π/π

(E) π/2

Area of square = area of circle

\(s^2 = πr^2\)
\(\sqrt{s^2}=\sqrt{π}*\sqrt{r^2}\)
\(s = \sqrt{π}*r\)
\(r = \frac{1}{2}d\), so

\(s=\sqrt{π}*r=\sqrt{π}*\frac{1}{2}d=\) \(\frac{\sqrt{π}d}{2}\)


Ratio of side of square, s, to diameter, d?

\(\frac{\frac{√π(d)}{2}}{d}=\frac{√π(d)}{2d}=\frac{√π}{2}\)

Answer B

We can create the equation:

s^2 = πr^2

s = r√π

s/r = √π

s/(2r) = √π/2

s/d = √π/2

Answer: B
