I was just thinking about it so it's not exactly a question.

I thought there would be a way because when I discovered this forums I found out about all these different types of "harder" maths. I thought to myself.. "anything is possible with maths".

ok well. This thread can be closed or whatever :) - Dec 16th 2009, 04:33 AMWilmer
Your question is a bit like:

the product of 2 numbers is 100; what are the 2 numbers?

1,100

2,50

4,25

5,20

10,10 - Dec 16th 2009, 02:01 PMjgv115
Well it's not really like that when the area becomes an irrational number....
