What is pi (3.14) rounded to the nearest whole number?

What is pi (~3.14)

or

What is pi (3.14...)

would be more correct.

The complete number is not needed for rounding purposes. I could have just used 3.1 instead of 3.14. It is a horse a piece.

Writing "pi (3.14)" is wrong.

Writing "pi (~3.14)" or "pi (3.14...)" is not.

Either way, what do you get when you round it to the nearest whole number ?

People keep asking that as though it were an apt question. It is not. The biblical passage in question does not give a value for pi, only the dimensions of a circular pool that are clearly wrong. Therefore, the value of pi is not the real issue. The issue is whether the Bible is infallible. In this instance, it is not.

In today's math yes. If you don't have fractions or decimal points and use elbow to finger tip as a ruler then 30 cubits would be accurate because Pi could and would only be "3".
What you don't seem to understand is that no multiplication by pi is required. Nor is it mentioned in the Bible. What is mentioned is the distance across (10 cubits) and the distance around (30 cubits). Both could be measured directly.

But now you have a problem. If the distance across is 10 cubits, the distance around would be just over 31 cubits. Again, this could be obtained by direct measurement, with no multiplication by anything. For the distance around to be rounded down to 30 cubits, the distance across has to be less than 10 cubits by about a third of a cubit: clearly something they would have noticed.

Either way, the Biblical account is not reliable. Either the distance around is larger than what was claimed or the distance across is significantly smaller than what was claimed.

Now, it is possible that they only measured the distance across, then multiplied by the rounded value of pi to get the (approximate) distance around, but that is even unlikely for that time period: they would have preferred to do the measurement directly.

Once again, I think the whole argument on this is just silly. There are far worse errors in the Bible than being off by a cubit in the distance around a vat. The lack of a global flood, for example. The lack of an exodus, as another.

Well - you won't get a circle with a ratio of 3:1 for the circumference:diameter.

Finally! Thank you. I find the whole, "The Bible says that Pi=3", argument to be annoying.

You give me the actual number for Pi if 3 is not Pi.

The number &#960; is a mathematical constant that is the ratio of a circle's circumference to its diameter.
