Yeah I know. Equilateral triangles, more generally similar polygons, lots of things.
So is proof so he gets left out of geometry entirely with geometers from long before Euclid to our generation spinning in their graves like pinwheels. Deductive logic be damned, full speed ahead with calculator or computer assistance.
So here's your problem: give us a proof for circles but avoid the usual squares.
