4. dumbcow

|dw:1360466599196:dw| sorry diagram isn't great its squares, circles, and equilateral triangles find ratio of area of shaded triangle to area of outer square good luck

5. Zelda

Well, that's kind a weird. Do we get any length of the original square side or something?

6. dumbcow

no assume its "x"

7. wio

The ratio is independent of length.

8. nincompoop

1/4

9. Zelda

@wio, forgot about that, @nincompoop, hmm, seems smaller?

10. Zelda

Fair enough, i'm going to go with 1/8.

11. Zelda

@dumbcow, I know, maybe in the morning, i'm going to sleep.

12. mathslover

area of the outer square means the largest square ?

13. dumbcow

yes

14. mathslover

$\cfrac{\sqrt{3}}{96}$

15. mathslover

^ is it correct ?

16. dumbcow

nope

17. mathslover

Oops might be a calculation mistake, lemme check again.

18. mathslover

$\frac{3\sqrt{3}}{128}$ ^ is it correct now ?

19. dumbcow

yes. congrats!

20. mathslover

Yuppie ... Thanks!

21. mathslover

by the way good question Sir!!!
