The centres and the point of contact are all in a straight line, if the circle is inside or outside.
The answer depends on whether the octagon is inside the circle or outside (tangential).
Four inside angles, all of them being right angles (90 degrees) in each corner. You could also count the four outside angles, outside each corner, each one being 270 degrees. (Adding one inside angle with its outside angle = 360 degrees (a circle)
... touches each circle in exactly one point on each circle. given any two circles where none is entirely inside or inside and tangent to the other, there are at most four straight lines that are tangent to both circles.
A. The hexagon is circumscribed about the circle . D. Each vertex of the hexagon lies outside the circle . E. The circle is tangent to each side of the hexagon .
the circle is inscribed in the polygon
The center of the largest circle that you could draw inside a given triangle is going to be at the incenter of the triangle. This is the point where bisectors from each angle of the triangle meet.
When a polygon is within a circle and the circle touches each one of its corners it is referred to as circumscribed.
Each circle defines the boundaries of a set, all of whose members share a characteristic. All objects with the characteristic are inside the circle, all those without that characteristic are outside.
yes, a circle has the smallest surface area of anything. just imagine a circle inside a square so that there is 1 point on each side of the square touching a point on the circle. The corners of the square are the only thing the circle does not have, while the circle does not have anything the square does not have. Square is bigger
