It works for anything round. Not sure why it doesn't work for something square...
I'll consult your partners and get back to you.
...Hey, Darwin's Dickhead...! If a donut is infinite length around it, how come a square,...say a PopTart...is not??
I hope I didn't just prompt a new theory - The Infinite Pop Tart Theory.
You never know with these "experts".

4 *(1 - 1/3 + 1/5 - 1/7 + 1/9 ...) is pi. People were doing this in the 1600s. If you're thicker than people in the 1600s, keep complaining.
I can show you how to do the first thousand iterations in something as shabby as Excel if you really care.

If you don't like pi not being exactly 3, go tell your god off for being so awkward.
<quoted text>
4 *(1 - 1/3 + 1/5 - 1/7 + 1/9 ...) is not pi.

It is two whole numbers, four fractions, an asterisk, open and close parentheses, three dots, two plus symbols, and two minus symbols.

There is nothing infinite there. It is very finite, proven by my being able to place it on this page in increments larger than zero.

(Something infinite would take a lot longer to write.)

You should refrain from commenting on things you don't understand. Pi is a finite number that is represented by an infinite decimal expansion. Circles as well as lines have infinitely many points (in fact, uncountably infinitely many points).
No.

There is no infinite decimal expansion. There is no infinite anything. Circles do not have infinitely many points. They don't have ANY points.

A point is alleged to have zero diameter. No such thing exists.

If something does not exist, then a circle cannot have infinite many of them.

We can imagine an infinite many of something with 0 diameter. We can talk about it, laugh about it, calculate measurements as if it existed, but it does not exist.

Pick something,...anything,...that does exist, and you can place only a finite number of them on a circle - any circle.

This falsifies the Infinite Donut Theory, proving it is not an infinite distance around a donut.

This is Buck School. Have a seat in the back next to GiveMeLiverwurst.

So if you used your arm to measures with how many decimal places do you think you would use?

<quoted text>No, in that case, you are off by more than a cubit. Almost a cubit and a half.
Not at all

The circumference measures around the outside and the diameter measured across the inside. One would not be off at all.

I already know more about infinity than any of the experts on this nuttwagon.

I did my research. You try some, Tinkling.

"The infinite is nowhere to be found in reality. It neither exists in nature nor provides a legitimate basis for rational thought. The role that remains for the infinite is solely that of an idea." -David Hilbert

"The notion of a completed infinity doesn't belong in mathematics; infinity is merely a figure of speech which helps us talk about limits" -German mathematician Carl Friedrich Gauss

"Actual infinity does not exist. What we call infinite is only the endless possibility of creating new objects no matter how many exist already" -French mathematician Henri Poincare

<quoted text>Here's a question. Suppose you have that the diameter is 10 cubits. Suppose you want the circumference to be accurate to the nearest cubit. How accurate of a value of pi do you need to do this?
Using both measurements to the outside of the vat?

I see using the lower case 'g' as simply pointing out that singular gods are in the same category as pagan gods. They are all mythological.
Just like infinite decimal expansions and infinite points on a circle.

But you believe in those.

How ever if you round off Pi to a whole number it is 3.

In that case it is represented by the number "3".

But pi is not a number.
