This is a drawing of Pi as it expands forever closer to a circle. This is a snapshot of an n-sided polygon with n=360 (or 360 right triangles that when you draw secant lines around the edge gives you an area equal to an n sided polygon with n=360). As n gets larger and approaches infinity the value approaches Pi forever because you are getting closer and closer to a circle for ever and as you fill in the edge of the circle (or it gets smoother as n gets larger). The area gets a little larger and the circumference get larger also as you add sides (as n grows larger), but the diameter stays the same.When you use secant lines (a line through two points on the edge of the \'circle\' every one degree in this drawing) you are approaching Pi from...
