The circle is the soil in the world, and the square is a tree coming out of the soil.
to construct (using a compass and straight-edge) a square with the same area as a given circle using only a finite number of steps. "Squaring the circle" was an ancient probl…em that has been proved impossible to do.
Both squares and circles are shapes. Also they are both two dimensional figures.
take the radius as half of the length of the side of square and use the point where two diagonals of the square intersect as the center of the circle. with this info , the cir…cle can be drawn.
