No sir, its all about a simple question of how many sides are there in a circle...and add to that, what are they?

 09-18-2010 #4 Mr. Hui     Join Date: Mar 2005 Posts: 10,609 Your riddles are usually very vague. I'm assuming you're referring to a circle (a two-dimensional shape) that exists in Euclidean geometry. If that is the case, I insist that axiomatically define "side" before this riddle could be answered. __________________ Do Math and you can do Anything!

You got it. The inside of the circle and the outside of the circle.
Therefore, a circle has 2 sides.

 09-26-2010 #9 Mr. Hui     Join Date: Mar 2005 Posts: 10,609 If this is the solution, the riddle should ask how many "regions" there are in a circle. A circle has infinitely many "sides." Circle - infinite sides __________________ Do Math and you can do Anything!
