A wire bent in the form of a circle of radius 42 cm is cut & again bent in the form of a square. How do I find the ratio of the regions enclosed by the circle & the square in the two cases?
Thanks,

I hope I've understood the question correctly! I'm infamous for misinterpreting what they're asking of me.
The area of the circle initially is
Now, the total amount of wire is the circumference of the circle. This is Where d is the diameter of the circle. As the diameter is twice the radius, and the total amount of wire is
Now then, one side of the square will be
The area of the square will be
So what will the area of the square be? And then, can you finish the question?
