Linear Functions

  1. Nov 9, 2004 #1
    So I'm asked to give a geometric description of a 1-1 function from a square onto a circle. Would I just have to say that it starts as a square of perimeter A and that is transformed to a circle of circumference A? Is there anything else "geometrically" to add? Is this even right?

    I really dont understand what the question wants but my guess is
    "Every point on the square uniquely maps to a unique point on the circle"
    But thats abt all i can say in this regard , atleast for now...

    Is it given that the circumference of the circle must be the same as the perimeter of the square?

    And why did you title this "linear functions"?
