Heart inscribed in a circle
Posted:
Aug 16, 2010 3:47 PM


Has anyone constructed a heart shape (really square with two semicircles on two adjacent sides) inside a given circle? The largest heart shape would be tangent to the larger circle at a point on each of the semicircles and then a vertex of the square (opposite the two semicircles). Then can you analytically find the angles?
Thanks for your help.
