What is the difference between an inscribed and a circumscribed shape?

circumscribed means the polygon is drawn around a circle, and inscribed means the polygon is drawn inside the circle. See related links below for polygon circumscribed about a circle and polygon inscribed in a circle.

When rectangles are inscribed, they lie entirely inside the area you're calculating. They never cross over the curve that bounds the area. Circumscribed rectangles cross over the curve and lie partially outside of the area. Circumscribed rectangles always yield a larger area than inscribed rectangles.

Inscribed has the vertices n the circle.Circumscribed has the sides tangent to the circle.

No. Just the opposite.It's easy to remember: INscribed is INside

Correct.

Figure Y is circumscribed about figure X.

== == Inscribed is a polygon inside a circle with all points on a given point in the circle. Circumscribed is a circle inside a polygon with any given point touching just one point on the polygon. Hope this helped.

True

Object B must be circumscribed about object A.

FALSE
