A circular feild circumscribes a plot of land that is 200 meters square. how many square meters of the circle are not inside the square?

If you are saying 200 meters "squared" then you would first have to take the measurement from one side of the triangle, which is 200 in this case, and is also the diameter of the circle. You divide the diameter by 2 to get the radius, then put it in the formula: pi*r^2. The area of the circle would be pi*10000, or if pi=3.14, 31400. Then find the area of the square (s^2) which is 40,000. Subtract 31,400 from 40,000 for your answer, which is 8,600 square meters.

Well, I initially misread the question, and switched the circle and square.

*triangle = square -_-

Okay, do the Patagonian Theorem to find the hypotenuse: c^2=200^2+200^2.
40,000+40,000= c^2. Then find the square root: 282.84. Then divide by 2. Insert into the circle area formula. subtract from the square's area. The correct answer is:

*facepalm* I didn't think about the question at all...

I left out the part about finding the side's measurement.
The correct answer is 114 square meters.
