# circles

A circle is a plane curve consisting of all points that have the same distance from a fixed point called **center** the common distance of the points on the curve from the center is called the **radius**. The region bounded by the circle is also often referred to as a circle (as when we speak of the area of a circle), the curve is referred to as the **perimeter** or the **circumference** of the circle.

**Note: ** that when the number of sides of a polygon is increased without limit, the sides merge into one line and polygon becomes a circle.
