FENCE1 - Build a Fence

There is a wall in your backyard. It is so long that you can’t see its endpoints. You want to build a fence of length L such that the area enclosed between the wall and the fence is maximized. The fence can be of arbitrary shape, but only its two endpoints may touch the wall.


The input consists of several test cases.

For every test case, there is only one integer L (1<=L<=100), indicating the length of the fence.

The input ends with L=0.


For each test case, output one line containing the largest area. Your answer should be rounded to 2 digits after the decimal point.

Why are you defining Pi yourself? There is M_PI in <math.h> in C/C++, and Math.PI in Java.

Use pi = 3.14 got WA, use pi = 3.141592654 and AC.

@sarthak_1998 man don't mislead others due to u i got one wa,use pi=3.1415926536

Taking ur advice about PI=3.142 i got WA @sharthak_1998
Then used PI=2*acos(0.0) and AC

Taking the value of pi=3.142 and not as pi=3.14159 cost me two WAs

What is the use of such fence?

Just one basic geometry concept and than its too easy to implement!

In python 3 use:

once you get the logic problem is super easy
ac in one go
