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.

What is the use of such fence?

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

In python 3 use:
Instead of:

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

AC in one go!!

Dedicated to those struggling in java ,try using DecimalFormat for rounding to proper value , printf for setting the precision and use pi = 3.14159 . :-)

why round is'nt working with python

I have an awful problem with this task in Java. For those who strugle with this task:
- for input 7 output should be 7.80 (NOT 7.8)
- for input 17 output should be 46.00 (NOT 46)

Implementation is easy. The only trick here is in precision. For C++, use fixed setprecision(2).

Implementation is too easy if you get it.
