Does anyone know if there is a way to divide up the area of a circle using similar polygons, with a common ratio? I was just curious if there is a way, or if it has been proven impossible.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

For example, I tried inscribing a square inside a circle and making an infinite series of triangles with the remaining area, but the triangles do not have a common ratio.
