228. Define Perimeter. 229. For discussion:

a. The circumference of a circle lies between the perimeters of the inscribed and circumscribed regular polygons.

b. The area of a circle lies between the areas of the inscribed and circumscribed regular polygons.

c. Of two regular polygons inscribed in a circle, the one with the greater number of sides is more nearly equal to the circle, and its perimeter is more nearly equal to the circumference.

d. Of two regular polygons circumscribed about a circle, the one with the greater number of sides is more nearly equal to the circle, and its perimeter is more nearly equal to the circumference.

e. If the number of sides of a regular inscribed or circumscribed polygon is indefinitely increased: 1. The perimeter of the polygon is said to approach the

circumference as its limit. 2. The area of the polygon is said to approach the area

of the circle as its limit. 230. PROBLEM: If the radius of a circle is 1, the circumference is > 6, and <8.
