History. Hippocrates wanted to solve the classic problem of squaring the circle, i.e. constructing a square by means of straightedge and compass, having the same area as a given circle. He proved that the lune bounded by the arcs labeled E and F in the figure has the same area as triangle afforded some hope of solving the circle-squaring problem, since the lune is bounded only by arcs.
