The largest square that could fit in a circle of diameter 10 inches has dimensions 5sqrt(2) inches by 5sqrt(2) inches.

-- If the square's area is 64 sq cm, then each side is 8 cm long.-- The largest circle that can fit inside the square is one with its diameterequal to the length of the square's side. (Draw it and you'll see why.)Diameter = 2 x radius = 8 cm.Radius = 4 cmArea = pi R2 = pi (4)2 = 16 pi = 50.2655 sq cm. (rounded)

A radius squared fits pi times into a circle (The area of a circle divided by pi is the radius squared).

from 1 to infinite.. depends how many you want to put in it.

16x16 inch tiles are square. If you place them on a circle, the edges will hang off, so we first need to find the size of the largest square that will fit in the circle. The largest square can be made of four isosceles triangles whose equal sides are equal to the length of the radius, so the area of the contained square is 2r2. An 11-foot diameter circle has a radius of 5.5 feet, so the square has an area of 2(5.5)2 = 60.5 square feet, or 60.5 * 122 square inches = 8712 square inches. The 16x16 tiles are 256 square inches, so 8712 / 256 = 34.03125 tiles that fit completely in the circle.

It is not. If you draw yourself a square then inscribe a circle with a radius of half the length of a side of the square, the circle will fit inside the square but the corners of the square will be outside the circle. Thus by inspection the area of the square is larger than the area of the circle.
