 arij May 26, 2002 No, the correct answer is 100 nirvanaman26 Jun 27, 2002 to arij, explain. geomtrically speaking,a circle is the only closed one-sided figure. nice play on words thebuddhawithin Jul 02, 2004 actually, the more logical answer would be that it is has ifinite sides. This is easy to see considering the fact that you can use that logic to derive the area of a circle from the area of a regular polygon. canu Jul 13, 2004 This play on words does not belong in the math section, but in Tricks or perhaps Language. And if you insist on continuing the play on words, cut out a circle from a piece of paper and count the sides: 2. Sane Feb 11, 2005 Besides the fact that you are wrong, that probably took you only 1 minute to conceive and post. darthforman May 26, 2005 ankita_lalmunde Jun 21, 2005 IT WAS A SILLY QUESTION. ONLY FOOLS CAN THINK OF IT. trickster2005 Jul 20, 2005 canu this is the trick section converse_chik Oct 22, 2005 uuuuummmmm, i missed it, WHOOSH! way over my dull blonde mind! no offense to other blondes, i am a special case! EVOLNI Nov 01, 2005 guys come on lightrn up its just a teaser. Proplr make mistakes! I bet you guys make more than most if you have to point other's out in such a mean way. Anyway great teaser! stephiesd Nov 04, 2005 converse, u'r wrong. ur not a special case. when people tell me i just had a blonde moment, i just say i was born that way. which i was. so i hear. anyway. clever. bookworm91 Nov 08, 2005 i thought it was cute. i said "none, what kind of question is that??" then i clicked on the answer. haha that can really make you feel dumb. nkatha23 Nov 09, 2005 Same boat with u bookworm...same answer same feeling after reading the answer... bhssoccer23 Nov 20, 2005 It's a joke.. a play on words...hence the category trick, not math. Lighten up people, it's not like he was trying to say that was the real answer. I think he probably knew that that wasn't what it really was. I thought it was funny and i don't think you committed any sins to the Geometry god or something. Keep up the good work. rhianon Dec 03, 2005 he had me! I was saying 1: the side that went all the way around. I was way off compared to the answer some of you gave like 100! Way to go! Good teaser! stephiesd Dec 09, 2005 i did this a month ago, and i got it wrong again. tissue Dec 24, 2005 Problem is, this apparently does have two answers. Either the true answer (1), or the figurative answer he provides (2). Since we have on way to distinguish which one he wants from the original teaser, this one poops out. irar1792 Dec 31, 2005 from what my geometry teacher taught us, a circle has 1!!! side. clever though Celanba Jan 22, 2006 Oh brother! SPUTNIK2 Jan 24, 2006 That was the coolest Mr. G thanks (user deleted) Feb 02, 2006 I think my two year old niece could have figured that one out. That has nothing to do with math by the way. Maybe you should try again with a better teaser. fezface Feb 24, 2006 that was good! very good! TehIgnored Mar 03, 2006 That was a joke my dad used to tell all the time.....good times. mitzimesser Mar 05, 2006 I've known that for years, I can't believe I didn't think of submitting that one myself. lol blackmarket69 Mar 08, 2006 i thought the answer was 27.......... coltonr1 Mar 15, 2006 um i thought at 1st none but then it said circle not a cphere and a chere has none but a circle does have 2 very vey clever i like tht 1 very much thx! it was fun! : Pritulsky14 Mar 15, 2006 That was a good one next time u should say that it is a sphere puppehs-rulez Mar 25, 2006 That part of the title that says Logic fooled me. lol. But it's pretty good. jj_is_cool Mar 29, 2006 i didnt follow that!!@ my house, , , , , , , ,, uuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuum. i forget Mellew Mar 30, 2006 hey ankita i must b a fool cause....I GOT IT RITE I GOT IT RITE I GOT IT RITE!!!!! ahh Mellew Mar 30, 2006 and yes by the way a circle has infinite sides spazzyjazzy93 Apr 05, 2006 thats so cute! bballer21 Apr 09, 2006 i m telling that to my math teacher!!!!! petraka Apr 25, 2006 hahaha that was good. amygurl101 Jun 10, 2006 funny!!!!!!!!hehehehahaha!!!!!!i thought circles had no sides....good one! Unraveled Jun 14, 2006 Heh, I got this one right because my dad was given a question like this on his driving test - how many sides are there on a stop sign? He answered 2 - inside and outside. DEJL Aug 05, 2006 Gave me a laugh! hsbanana90 Aug 20, 2006 hehe, good one. angelpunk Oct 08, 2006 You know what confuses a stupid person?Tell 'em to sit in a corner in a circular room.Do you know how a stupid person confuses you?She comes out and sais she/he did it. Kaioke Nov 08, 2006 Hm. Circle Logic? Sorry, I don't think so. A circle has an infinite amount of sides. :3 peter90745 Feb 15, 2007 thats was really tricky bgil7604 Feb 23, 2007 This was a silly question. The answer should actually be infinity, becasue there are an infinite number of POINTS in a circle. cooltigerr1 Mar 31, 2007 this was really st-up-id i guessed it right too... figures zeepuzzlemaster Nov 25, 2007 I could be infinite or two. Infinite is correct However, a circles is not a polygon because the definition of a polygon is an enclosed figure with a definite number of line segments. dowinka Jun 20, 2008 way to easy ive heard it a million times jazzyca7 Sep 14, 2008 well it could've been four: inside,outside,(and on paper) front and back! Prinesca Feb 01, 2010 Haha! thebrain789 Jul 01, 2010 I thought zero or an infinite number. BOBdaMAN Mar 19, 2011 eight then inside, outside, front, back, top bottom, left, and right
