Cutting square

From a square with a side of 30 cm, we cut the circle with the highest possible diameter. How many percents of the square content is this circle?

Correct answer:

p =  78.5398 %

Step-by-step explanation:

a=30 cm r=a/2=30/2=15 cm S1=a2=302=900 cm2 S2=π r2=3.1416 152706.8583 cm2  p=100 S2S1=100 706.8583900=78.5398%
