# Infinite Geometric Series: Square Inscribed in Circle Radius

A square is inscribed in a circle of radius 100. The area of that circle which lies outside of the square is shaded. Another circle is inscribed in the square, and then a second square is inscribed in that second circle. The area of the second circle which lies outside of the second square is shaded. This process is continued to infinity. What is the sum of all of the shaded areas? How do I find this?

First Area w/ following:

Radius of circle - 100

Side of - __________

Area of - ______________

Area of ________________

Difference ______________

Second Area - ?
