  102. 102. S/T.4. ._________ the circle is a problem proposed by ancient geometers.

More abstractly and more precisely, it may be taken to ask whether specified axioms of Euclidean geometry concerning the existence of lines and circles entail the existence of such a ______. In 1882, the task was proven to be impossible, as a consequence of the Lindemann– Weierstrass theorem which proves that pi (p) is a transcendental, rather than an algebraic irrational number; that is, it is not the root of any polynomial with rational coefficients. It had been known for some decades before then that the construction would be impossible if pi were transcendental, but pi was not proven transcendental until 1882. The expression "_______ the circle" is sometimes used as a metaphor for trying to do the impossible.
