Construct a circle with a 4.5 radius. The circle's circumference is 360 degrees. So mark out 3 by 120 degrees on the circumference and join them to the centre of the circle which will divide the circle into three equal parts.

A circle has 360 degrees inside it, 360/3=120. Cut the circle up so that there are three 120 degree angled wedges and you have 3 equal parts.

step 1: make a circle with a compass step 2: divide the circle into 4 equal parts step 3: draw curved lines

You draw a circle, and divide it into several equal parts - for example, 4 equal parts. Then you select some of those parts - for example, 3, by drawing them in some special color or shading them. Using a circle is convenient, because then, even if you divide it into pieces, it is visually quite clear that it is part of something greater.

Ans: 16 pieces One chord divides the circle into 2 parts. Two chords divide the circle into 4 parts, in the third three chords divide the circle into 3 parts and the forth diagram 4 chords divide the circle into 11 parts. Here you see that the first cut creates 1 new region (1+1) The second cut creates 2 new regions (2+2) The third cut creates 3 new regions (4+3) and the 4th cut creates 4 new regions (7+4) So, 5th cut is (11+5) This is mathematically represented as F (n) = n + f (n-1)

Make a horizontal line and vertical line through the circle. You now have 4 parts. Make a line from the center to the edge of the circle in 3 of these parts and you now have 7 parts.

shade in 6 then divide the next circle, square, ect.. into 10ths then shade in 3 parts.

To divide a sphere in 8 equal parts in three steps: * Cut a plane through the most circular part of the sphere - this cuts the sphere in half * Cut a plane perpendicular to the first plane with the lengths aligned - this cuts the sphere in four pieces * Cut a plane perpendicular to the first plane at a right angle to the second plane - this cuts the sphere into eight pieces

By circling the diameter to 1300 cm and then cutting them in half and again to divide the equamatric. Its all in the way you look at it. Its REALLY simple.

circle is 2d so, just fold it 15!

You divide it 3 by 3.
