Compass and straightedge difficult construction

I don't know if there is any way to geometrically construct a circle with a given length of circumference.

I have tried several options but don't seem to get it. Any construction I think of, involves π, which I think is impossible to construct geometrically, right?

Any help?

• "Ruler" is the wrong word here. Otherwise the answer is "use your ruler to find the length $1/2\pi$... "Straightedge" is probably what you mean. – B. Goddard Nov 16 at 15:35

In 1882, the task was proven to be impossible, as a consequence of the Lindemann–Weierstrass theorem which proves that $$\pi$$ is a transcendental, rather than an algebraic irrational number; that is, it is not the root of any polynomial with rational coefficients.
cannot be done. $$\pi$$ is not just irrational, it is transcendental.
