**drwls**, Monday, February 22, 2010 at 6:28pmWhat do you mean by the radius of a square? Are you referring to the inscribed circle or the circumscribed (outside) circle?

If 10 sqrt2 is the radius of a circumscribed circle, then the square inside the circle has side lengths of 20. The area is then 400.

**cody**, Monday, February 22, 2010 at 6:35pmit is only a square, no circle. the radius i am refering to is from the corner point to the midpoint of the square. and from the midpoint there is a line going straight down, thus forth a 45-45-90. it is like dividing a sqaure into 4 equal sections, each corner is in 1/4 of the square. then take one section, and cut that straight in half from the midpoint to the corner. that line is the 10 sqrt of 2.

**drwls**, Monday, February 22, 2010 at 6:43pmIn that case it is like the radius of a circumscribed circle, and the answer I gave is the correct one.
