"Hi everybody"

Ancient pi;

Contemporary measurements/computations cite pi as being 3.141592654.Today, the unending expression of pi serves no practical purpose that of an unending contest to discover the ultimate expression of pi.


The ancient Babylonians calculated the area of a circle by taking 3 times the square of its radius, which gave a value of pi = 3. One Babylonian tablet indicates a value of 3.125 for pi.
The Rhind Papyrus gives us insight into the mathematics of ancient Egypt. The Egyptians calculated the area of a circle by a formula that gave the approximate value of 3.1605 for pi.

The ancients sought to work with whole numbers. However, once we realize that the ancient reckoning system may have been based upon the concept of a floating decimal place, then we should understand that all numbers, in fact, may be visualized as whole numbers. The advantage of decimal floating-point representation over decimal fixed-point and integer representation is that it supports a much wider range of values.This wider range can dramatically slow the accumulation of rounding errors during successive calculations.

Astronomical dating, like other forms of historical interpretation, requires care in interpreting the surviving written records.
Among the artifacts that can most readily be dated by astronomical techniques are depictions of the positions of the celestial bodies at a particular time.
This data is provided primarily to assist in historical research projects.

The Assyrian eclipse, also known as the Bur-Sagale eclipse, is a solar eclipse recorded in Assyrian eponym lists, most likely dating the ninth year of the reign of king Ashur-dan III. The eclipse is identified with the one that occurred on 24th of June 790 BC (Assyrian eclipse).

I do not speak English, that's why I use a google translator. I hope that in time this will be more accurate.Greetings to all of you from Poland.
