The applet above shows the relationship between the area of a circle and the inscribed polygon. Notice that as the the number of sides of the inscribed polygon (

*n*) increases, its area gets closer and closer to the area of the circle which is equal to . This approximation is called the method of exhaustion. It was developed used by Archimedes.*Note: If you do not see the applet above, download and install Java.*
