Some of the geometric formulas we take for granted today were first derived by methods that anticipate some of the methods of calculus.

We can estimate the area of a circle by computing the area of an inscribed regular polygon. Think of the regular polygon as being made up of n triangles. By taking the limit as the vertex angle of these mangles goes to zero, you can obtain the area of the circle. To see this, carry out the following steps:
