A circle is an infinite series of points equidistant from the center.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

but can a circle be composed of an infinite series of lines?

if you draw a square & connect the 4 side, that are equidistant from the center, then draw draw and infinite series of points on those lines. each one of the points on the line is not the same distance from the circle.

know draw a trillion points all equidistant from the center, and draw lines between those points & draw points on those lines. those points are not equidistant.

so a circle cannot be composed of an infinite series of lines. because each would be composed of an infinite series of points each not equadistant from the center.

which says making a circle with an infinite series of lines is impossible.

am i thinking right?
