Sample Question #248 (mathematics – geometry)
Wow, dude, you have a Ph.D. in math! Do me a favor, will you? My 10-year-old son was asking me this question last night but I couldn’t work it out.
A circle is inscribed in a square. What’s the ratio of the circle’s area to the square’s area?
(Comment: okay, I pose the question in a dramatic context, but this kind of question can be asked of any candidate, because everyone studied basic geometry back in elementary school!)
