Circular Meaning and Definition in Wikipedia


A circle is a round, regular, two-dimensional shape, shaped like the letter o.

The centre of a circle is the point in the very middle.

The radius of a circle is a line from the centre of the circle to a point on the side.

All points on the edge of the circle are at the same distance from the centre. In other words, the radius is the same length all the way around the circle. Mathematicians use the letter r for the length of a circle's radius.
