Drew,

If it were that simple.

Pi^2 Our method 3.141592653... x 3.141592653... = 9.869604401..all you have to do is press 2 buttons on your handy dandy calculator..

If the Ancient Egyptian used our method for squaring pi approximately the same value expressed in unit fractions as they used them:
The fractional value of 355/113 = 3.14159292 = 3 + 1/8 + 1/88 + 1/226 + 1/1243 noted in Egyptian fractions and what follows with the same squaring of pi written as Egyptian Unit Fractions:
The result is in bold:
(3 + 1/8 + 1/88 + 1/226 + 1/1243) x (3 + 1/8 + 1/88 + 1/226 + 1/1243) = 9 + 1/2 + 1/3 + 1/28 + 1/1791 + 1/9027683 + 1/9239188716. the last unit fraction in the series written in hieroglyphs would be 55 characters long.

A diameter of 8 multiplied by (3 + 1/8 + 1/88 + 1/226 + 1/1243) x 8 = 25 + 1/8 + 1/130 + 1/20792 + 1/337870 circumference.

A diameter of 8 x 4 square perimeter 32 x (11/14) = 25 1/7 circumference.

[www.mathnstuff.com] All of their multiplication and division was binary governed by the Eye of Horace series 1/2 + 1/4 + 1/8 + 1/16 + 1/32 + 1/64 powers of 2.

Put the calculator and computer aside and learn how the Ancient Egyptians calculate by their methods and you might understand why they chose square and circle (8/9)d^2 or the run rise of the 5 1/2 seked.

Just for the record adding 1/16 to 1/7 equals 1/7 + 1/16 = 23/112
23/112 + 3 = 3 + 1/7 + 1/16 = 3.205357142857...

Regards,
Jacob
