Ha, nice did make me think for a moment, then saw the 'reason'
High brow entertainment indeed, if you went fractal pi = ∞
Nice one Makes sense, kind of!
Sense... it makes none
Take a circle and inscribe a polygon (draw a shape inside). This polygons perimeter is smaller than the circumference of the circle itself.
Superscribe a polygon (outside the circle) and this new polygon is larger than the circumference of the circle.
By increasing the number of sides on a polygon the closer it gets to the shape of a circle. Increase the number of sides on the earlier two polygons - their perimeters can define two series; one increasing and one decreasing.
Some Greek guy with too much time on their hands used a 96 sided polygon and came up with an upper limit of around 3.142857 and a lower limit of approx 3.140845. By having the only pattern in the first three digits this proved that Pi was in fact 3.14 (2d.p) then this 'approximation' was improved on later using more more sophisticated calculations as they didn't have to use bags of sand for addition......
There... I just sinlge handedly ruined the joke
Jon's replaces 2 line segments with 2 equal indented line segments, it's a fractal length. Even if reduced to a cross + it still has length 4 (each leg has 2 lines).
That only shows the perimeter of the outside of the circle ..... to get it accurate you need to do the inside as well and then average them
the inside of the circle works out to be 2.8
average them out and you get a circle perimeter of 3.4 .... hmmmmmmm
Unless some enneacontakaihexagonal bedroom action footage is forthcoming, even I am declaring this thread as boring.
I'll have to find something more fun for tomorrow. Maybe a polynomial puzzle or something.
tbh I thought pi=4 was cool enough You lot are weird.
So much nerdery.
