Yes I said "We are employing our terms like pi, phi, sqrt2, sqrt3, sqrt5, using decimals and angles is perfectly understandable, because that is way we were trained. It is not the way Ancient Egyptians were trained. They were trained in unit fractions and seked and sadly therein lies the problem. Even our best trained mathematicians have a very limited knowledge of the concepts, principles and elements of the Ancient Egyptians methods."
If anyone choses to believes I am saying the Ancient Egyptians were not cognizant of these values in rational form, or their importance in calculations, design and constructions......that would be their problem. The reality is there are fractional equivalents within 4 to 5 decimal places of accuracy for all our values listed above easily substituted for our current values. To the Ancient Egyptians our values simply did not
Understanding the differences in math systems can sometimes answer question as to why the Ancient Egyptians did things in a particular manner:
Example: Sqrt 3 rational form: 1 + 1/2 + 1/7 + 1/14 + 1/56 = 1 + 41/56 = 97/56 decimal value of 1.732142857…a difference of 0.00009205 to our current value for the sqrt 3 , again accurate enough for most calculations.
i.e. (97/56 = 1.732142857…) minus the (sqrt 3 = 1.732050808) = 0.00009205
One interesting thing about 1 + 1/2 + 1/7 + 1/14 + 1/56 and just for fun because we know the Ancient Egyptians did not use angles but seked is: tan 97/56 = 60º 0’ 4.75” cotan 56/97 = 29º 59’ 55.25” compared to our measure for the latitude of G1 29ª 58’ 45.12“N having a difference of 0º 1’ 10.13” from our given location for G1.
All along I have stated nothing more than 'Understanding the differences in math systems can sometimes answer questions'.
Now if you want to take it personally that would be your problem.
BTW Do try and stay on topic, as the subject of the thread is Pi or no pi!
