Your equation 10/9×4×2×10/9 = 800/81 = 9 71/81

As stated previously, which didn't seem to register with you the first time, taking (800/81) find the square root of 800 is 28.28427124746190097603377448419396157139343750753896146353... = (20sqrt(2) and since it uses the square root of 2 which is an irrational number, which it then divided by the square root of 81 which is 9 a rational number. 28.28427124746190097603377448419396157139343750753896146353... / 9 = (20sqrt(2))/9 = 3.142696805273544552892641609354884619043715278615440162614... as your value for pi, which is also an irrational number.

Please demonstrate how the Ancient Egyptian or any-other ancient civilization had the ability to note irrational numbers? To the best of my knowledge there are no records of irrational numbers in any known Ancient Text or archives from that period of time. By the scientific method you are required to provide some evidence to support your claim. In your case simply supply evidence supporting their ability to note irrational numbers.
