I thought about this, and my immediate answer is 1 side. And that makes sense.
But I also remembered how the more sides a perfect polygon has, the more ‘round’ it looks.
So I figured if a perfect polygon has an infinite number of sides, it would be perfectly round, like how a circle is.
So a circle has an infinite amount of sides?
I also thought about slices. A hexagon would have 6 identical perfectly triangular slices. A octogon would have 8 of such slices, Dodecagon would have 12, etc. The more slices there are per polygon, the thinner the slices get (obviously).
So that means if a circle has an infinite amount of sides, you could cut an infinite amount of infinitely thin perfectly triangular slices out of it.
And that makes sense, you could cut an infinite amount of infinitely thin perfectly triangular slices out of a circle, just as you can cut 6 out of a hexagon.
So that means a circle has an infinite amount of sides?
But I look back at my immediate answer, and I think I’m over thinking this. A circle has 1 curved side that goes all the way around?
I keep going back and forth, and I honestly think it could be both.
What do you guys think?
How many sides does a circle have?
