Q - question

Green square - mathematical charade and parametric constraints in AutoCAD.

A - answer Inspired by a guess on Twitter:

The task - to find the area of the green square - seems to be insufficiently constrained - so the square area is not definable - see the AutoCAD simulation using parametric geometry with many constraints (equal lengths, perpendicularity, point to curve constraint...), associative hatches, a text field/label with the object property (area) and a LISP reactor to automatically update that field after grip editing :

You can download the DWG drawing with constraint definitions from the CAD Block Library - GreenSquare.dwg .
