What shape do these pictures remind you of?

Circles - 1

All these objects remind us of the shape of a circle.

A circle is a simple closed curve. It is made of a curved line. ‘O’ is the Center of the circle. We can name the circle by its center. This is circles O.

Circles - 2

This is the radius of the circle. The radius is a line segment that runs between the circle and its center. This is  radius OP. We can have several radii all of the same length starting from O going to other points on the circle. This is because all the points on the circle are at an equal distance from the center.
