So, no need to stop trying to help. I meant no offense, I just thought you missed soroban's intent entirely.

[QUOTE="Ryan"]So a circle has an infinite number of sides of infinitesimal length./QUOTE] Seems correct, but each "side" with infinitesimal length would have no length at all, and therefore would not be a side. Thus a circle had no sides.

In any case, there is fun mathematics to be had by taking the area of a regular polygon in terms of the number of sides and the 'radius' and using L'Hopital's rule to determine what the area should be as $\displaystyle n \rightarrow \infty$. I started typing it out but I'm at work and it's not my lunch break yet!
