A one sided polygon, or a infinite sided polygon?
#2
a circle.
it doesnt have sides.
it doesnt have sides.
#3
It's like a line. But you can't see it.
edit: or like asymptotes

Inside and outside.
#5
It's a circle - who cares?
#6
Infinite... that's what makes it round.

The study of circles is pretty important in geometry.
I just wanted to get the pit alternatively thinking
#8
Infinite.
The more lines in a shape, the more like a circle it becomes.

Nope. You can bend a wire into a circle can't you?
We're looking at your standard circle placed on a Descartes Grid though. I'd say it is infinite because that's what makes it perfectly round

It will never be a circle in definition mind

Not if it's an irregular polygon.
#12
Where is the 'no sides' poll answer?
#13
One.
#14
Infinite amount... but really.... there are no sides.... well then again. One side?
My head hurts.

#15
how about the choice of "not a polygon"?
#16
A circle isn't a polygon, it has no line segments ("sides").
#17
neither. a circle is merely a center point and all the points surrounding it from a given radius. but i voted infinite because there's an infinite number of points surrounding it...
#18
Infinite. Actually. It's what archimedes found out pretty much. It'll make more sense in calculus.
#19
a circle results from dividing a sphere by zero. everyone knows that.
#20

An easy comparison is this;
There are an infinite amount of values in between 0 and 1 due to decimals
#21
By thinking of a circle as a polygon, you're already doing it wrong.... I think.
In calculus you learn of limits. There is a limit to how many sides a polygon will reach, I.E. how large its interior angles can be. It will never become a circle, because doing that would be like reaching infinity.

Fair do. I'm still on AS Maths, so I have yet to experience that.
#24
This is the stupidest question ever, we ALL know it has no sides. It's like asking if my music teacher is 'cool'..
#25
^ Infinite TARD!!

I actually haven't taken calculus. I'm in geometry.
#27
Infinite.
Surely something can't be a one sided polygon. 'Poly' means 'many' doesnt it?

I'm British, doing my first year of College. I'm doing Maths at A Level. Calculus in my first year is simply definite integration, max/min points, turning points, stationary points, basic uses of differentiation in equations. We cover a range, not specifics and I'm doing three other topics too.
#30
By infinite you mean countable infinite or oncountable infinite?

Infinite tangent lines, not sides.
#32
Yes!!!!

MARIO! VS, FIGHTING POLYGON TEAM!
#34

Exactly.
If it has sides it must also have corners. It has neither.

Okay smartass. A circle by definition is perfectly round... if it isn't, it is just an elipse.

I could agree with you in terms of what I've learnt in this thread
#37
^the correct def. is it has constant curvature.

Are moments of true win.

Something with one side can't be a polygon by definition.
#40
it's a freakin circle.
