### WHAT ARE THE VERTICES OF A CIRCLE?

Depending on how you want to define vertices, a circle either
has no vertices or the circle is composed of infinite vertices. A
vertex is where two straight edges meet. Since a circle is
continuously curved you can easily argue that it has no straight
edges to meet and form a vertex. From a limits standpoint though it
has infinitely many straight segments - but they are are all of
length 1/∞
