    It is possible that we disagree perhaps, you follow the King James Version, I was following the original Bible Text.
    Shouldn't it be 1 Kings 22:7?
    The original Bilble Text is Hebrew, can you read it?

    Which makes it interesing cuz, if you divide the verse by the chapter you get, 22/7.
    It's proof of the Bible Code
    (even though I believe in the Bible, I think this Bible code stuff is nonsense)


    Going back on topic....

    Does anyone know pi in decimal form to the fourteenth decimal? I would like to compare my approximation of 3.14159265358979 to the actual number.

    Archimedes is rather modern in that he does not give a single estimate

    is to trap the area of a circle between a sequence of circumscribed and
    inscribed regular polygons, which produces upper and lower limits for
    the value of \pi.

    Archimedes uses polygons of 96 sides and finds:

    223/71<\pi<22/7.

    Hacker, you agree \sqrt{-25}=5i

    but you say you cannot solve for negative square roots. How would you solve? (preferably showing all the work)

    I think this post looks lost, should it not be in a different thread?

    It's funny, I blanked out and thought this was my "imaginary numbers " thread
    just one of those moments...
