Purpose of use
Calculating useful area of patio shade.
The inverse would also be useful but not so simple, e.g., what size triangle do I need for a given incircle area.

Purpose of use
As the previous comment stated, this was used to find the circular radius of the USPS Medium Tube (which ironically is a triangular prism) for the purposes of shipping items of circular cross-section (cylinders). The answer was about 1.5 inches, so the "tubes" are way too small for the items I wanted to ship inside. But that''s perfect for blueprints, its designed application.
