Whether it's in geometry class or a craft project, precision is important when dividing a circle. It is essential to identify the exact center point of the circle before proceeding to divide it; this point is easy to know if you start by drawing the circle from scratch with a compass. Once you've divided the circle into halves and then quarters, the process can be repeated to continue to divide the circle into equal segments.
