Dear Prof Abe

Attached images are

1.Rectangle within a Circle.

2.Level Crossing - Intersection is rectangle shape highlighted by red line.

From Rectangle's center point draw a circle, here the rectangle edges will not touch the Circle boundary.

Is the Geometrical shape attached image 1 viz Rectangle within a Circle can be constructed geometrically ?.

i.e. is it a correct geometrical shape constructed similar to a square, rectangle, semicircle, circle, triangle, pentagon, parabola etc ?.

Awaiting your reply,

Thanks & Regards,

Prashant S Akerkar

Hello Prashant,

I do not understand your questions.

1. Are you asking if a circle can be constructed show its center coincides with the center

. of a rectangle so that the rectangle does not intersect the circle? The answer is YES!

. All you need is the radius of the circle to be greater than the distance from the center

. of the rectangle to one of its corners.

2. What is the question here?

Abe
