how many sides does a circle have?

many sides, they are very well-rounded folk

the hypothetical perfect math circle has one side
a "circle" in some vertex-based rendering would have anywhere from 4 to infinitely many sides
yes i am counting a square rotated 45 degrees as a circle

the hypothetical perfect math circle has one side

if i look at the front, and someone else looks at the back, are we looking at the same side?

hypothetical perfect circle is also a hypothetical perfect plane that is infinitely thin and only has one side, so yes, it is the same one side from all angles

Depends on if you mean side as an edge or side as a plane.

Edge: 1

Plane: 2

a riddle that relies on ambiguous terms that can be defined any way you want is not a riddle


A better question would be: does a circle have no vertices or an infinite amount of vertices?

a circle has two sides- the inside and the outside!


uh, that's all the riddles i have


i believe the actual technical answer is infinity

trick question. It has a single vertex.
