Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0let the length of each side of square is S area of circle = S^2 as the diameter of the circle is equal to the side length of the square thus the length of its radius become S/2 area of circle = pi (S/2)^2 can you find the ratio now??

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1let the side length of the square be x the radius of the circle is x/2 so the ratio of areas square to circle is \[x^2 : \pi (\frac{x}{2})^2\] or \[x^2 : \pi \frac{x^2}{4}\] it can be simplified by dividing both sides of the ratio by x^2 which gives \[1:\frac{\pi}{4}\] hope this makes sense.
