**Reiny**, Wednesday, April 16, 2008 at 2:03pm1. the wire would have to be cut into 4 equal parts, making each side of the square x/4 units long

so Area = (x/4)^2 = x^2 /16

2. In this one, isn't the side of the square equal to 2x (the diameter of the circle) ?

You should be able to take it from here.
