What I hear from you is "I've made up my mind, so don't confuse me with the facts. and Dammit, I use pi so the Ancient Egyptians must have used pi! All you have to do is find one example of their having used 256/81 or 22/7 as we employ pi.
LOL, Rhind Mathematical Papyrus problem # 50 What is the area of a circular field with a diameter of 9. The written solution states, subtract 1/9 of of the diameter which leaves 8 khet. The area is 8 multiplied by 8, or 64 setat.
Find pi in that statement? Fact: You cannot find pi without using pi in some manner to derive 256/81. Give it a try without pi!
The area of a circle of diameter d is = π (d/2)^2 = πd^2/4. Given the area of the square is 64 which equals π 9^2/4 = π 81/4, then π = 3 + 1/9 + 1/27 + 1/81 in Egyptian Fractions.
This G2 rise run 4/3 and (4/3^2)^2 = 256/81 is only one of the hundreds of calculations that produce 3 + 1/9 + 1/27 + 1/81, but that does not mean they used pi in any manner.All you have to do is find one example of their having used 256/81 as we employ pi.
I am sure there were priceless scrolls of full of information, but do we assume they had any different methods or secrets?
Yea Drew, you go pick those yokels apart.
