1. do this. Get 4 quarters, put the first one on the corner of a piece of paper. Now add the other three.

I think the smallest square you can get with the quarters enclosed is will have twice the diameter of any quarter.

areaaqarter= (D/2)^2 PI= 4PI

Diameter= 4 inches. area box side= 2*diatmeter.
