 Splitting A Circle Evenly 2006-12-20 From Joe:I'm trying to make a game board and instead of having it square, I would like to give it a curve (the game is Parcheesi). The attached diagram is pretty much completed (done in AutoCAD). What I would like to know is how to manually find the points that intersect the red line. In other words, evenly split the semi-circle into 8 pieces.Answered by Penny Nom. Dividing a Circle 1999-04-12 From Mike Kenedy: I am having trouble with a homework question for bonus marks. A Circle is continually divided by lines that do not intersect the center so that they produce the most pieces of circle. For example 1 line divides the circle into 2. 2 into 4. 3, however into 7. 4 into11 5 into 16 6 into 22 7 into 29 8 into 37 etc... I am stumped and cannot figure out the equation, though I'm sure it involves squares. Can you help?Answered by Penny Nom.
