@Chip,
Your dream about Pi is incorrect & Helen should check her math.

Try a brief experiment: Using a compass, draw a circle. Take one piece of string and place it on top of the circle, exactly once around. Now straighten out the string; its length is called the circumference of the circle. Measure the circumference with a ruler. Next, measure the diameter of the circle, which is the length from any point on the circle straight through its center to another point on the opposite side. (The diameter is twice the radius, the length from any point on the circle to its center.) If you divide the circumference of the circle by the diameter, you will get approximately 3.14—no matter what size circle you drew!

Circle inscribed in an equilateral & equiangular hexagon? Could pi actually equal 3 and not equal approximately 3.14? Was Archimedes’s pi value deliberately misquoted for political gain? | 222 | ChipBurchamregisteredagain | 18-Feb-21 23:31 |
