Maybe you can understand this: Circle: x2 + y2 = r2 Line: y = mx + b

*cough*
r = 1

Not everyone works in Cartesian.

I would have to say none.

A circle has six corners, because the Bible says that Pi equals 3 (It's in the description of Solomon's temple)

Interesting how everyone tells me I'm wrong... and then goes on to agree with me.

Do I have everyone believing that a line is not a circle?
Do I have everyone believing that true representations of circles do not exist? I think my point is made. Thanks for agreeing by disagreeing. I don't know how everyone did it but it sure was conveinent.

Psst, yes, it is, geometrically. A circle is a series of points (a.k.a. a line) at an equal distance from a center point. The chord of a circle is line (there's that word again) whose end points both lie on the circle.

geometrically, lines are completely straight

I would say none, but I suppose either is possible, if you think about it.

I can't think about it right now. *brain explodes*

Really?

REALLY?

Because, as far as I know geometry, there's no formal word for "straight" as in common usage for the intuitive line concept. And with an axiomatic geometry, lines are not defined but rather distinguished by a set of properties. And then, the closest one gets to "straight" is "the closest distance between two points"...

Which, with non-Euclidian geometries (and thus alternate topologies), betrays that notion of "straight".

Whoa, this whole question makes my brain ache. I'm gonna say... none. Infinite. None. Inf... yeah whatever.

all of them

Its one big round complete corner

Now I am no where near as intelligent as the people answering this question, however. If a circle has infinite amount of lines due to, quotation by CIRESTAN Drawn on a sheet of paper there will be tiny, even microscopic ridges, which will form corners. On a computer the display is still only binary and breaks down to tiny squares. In a machine shop a piece of steel on a lathe will still have "grain" and material imperfections. I f this is true then everything draw or written or graphically designed on a computer has infinite amount of ridges that form corner, so therefore there is no one shape as they all have infinite corners, it's just that some are more prominent that others!

Just a thought :)

I seem to recall my calc prof saying infinite one time, so I'm gonna go ahead and run with that answer.
