# Program to calculate area of Circumcircle of an Equilateral Triangle

Given the length of sides of an equilateral triangle. We need to write a program to find the area of Circumcircle of the given equilateral triangle.

Examples:

Input : side = 6 Output : Area of circumscribed circle is: 37.69 Input : side = 9 Output : Area of circumscribed circle is: 84.82

All three sides of equilateral triangle are of equal length and all three interior angles are 60 degrees.

**Properties of a Circumcircle are as follows:**

- The center of the circumcircle is the point where the medians of the equilateral triangle intersect.
- Circumscribed circle of an equilateral triangle is made through the three vertices of an equilateral triangle.
- The radius of a circumcircle of an equilateral triangle is equal to (a / √3), where ‘a’ is the length of the side of equilateral triangle.

Below image shows an equilateral triangle with circumcircle:

The formula used to calculate the area of circumscribed circle is:

(π*a^{2})/3

where **a** is the length of the side of the given equilateral triangle.

**How this formulae works?**

We know that area of circle = π*r^{2}, where r is the radius of given circle.

We also know that radius of Circumcircle of an equilateral triangle = (side of the equilateral triangle)/ √3.

Therefore, area = π*r^{2} = π*a^{2}/3.
