Okay, i know i said i was leaving this thread, but think.. cwarn23, you are challenging the whole idea of pi... then why are you making a calculator that makes the "wrong" pi? or does this new calculator take into account how many "atoms" there are in the "circle" and spit out your new idea of pi?

I can't believe nobody gets me. I believe in pi just like you do but I found out the hard way.

Are you sure, because all this time I thought we were arguing
because we disagreed in what pi was ?

Post 66 - You (at least at one point) had a theory that Pi didn't exist that got "slaughtered", so apparently your views very recently changed. Here's what I believe regarding pi:

  1. It exists.
  2. It's irrational.
  3. Its length is infinite (see point 2 above).
  4. It's equal to 3.14159...
  5. None of the points above will change in the slightest if we discover that atoms, molecules, pixels, quarks, etc. are a different shape than we thought they were before.

If you agree with all the points above, then I think we all agree (I'm assuming everyone else agrees with the points above). If you don't agree with any of the points above, please point out which one(s) you don't agree with.

Can someone somehow mark this thread as closed, so that we can be relieved from this agony?
Everyone has a right to an opinion and think what he/she wants, I not always want to share those thoughts.

Those points are all correct and the reason - magnetic fields are rounded. So many of my first posts in this topic are inaccurate due to the lack of knowledge but after this discussion I see how pi exists just like every body else on earth says it exists. So could we talk about pi now because I'm hungry.

I can't make it much clearer than that. Also I hear in pi there is a number combination 666666. Do you believe to same occurs for every other number?

When dealing with random numbers, any and all possible number combinations are possible - including a million '6's in a row. Pi is now calculated to 2.3 trillion places and takes up a terabyte of storage to hold. Go ahead and search it for any combination of numbers you want.

Thread necromancy?

Man this was a fun read though. I sympathize with cwarn, though... I tend to believe that "irrational" numbers in general have a weaker correspondence to "reality" - or physical reality, or God's reality, or whatever - than do, say, the integers and the rational numbers.

Not in the sense that the definitions of "irrational" numbers are inconsistent, or that it is impossible to reason about them logically, but in the sense that God created the integers and all the rest is the invention of man.

I suppose the real question, then, is whether there "exist" in a substantive sense integer numbers... I tend to think they probably do, but I admit that I don't have a particularly clear reason for thinking so. Some of the selfsame arguments against cwarn seem to shore up this belief tool; all real circles are just many-sided polygons, after all. And not necessarily regular ones at that.

Eh. Beats me. cwarn sort of reminds me of myself, if I didn't know anything about math.

Hunh? Bringing god into a discussion of numbers? Circles are not many-sided polygons; circles can be approximated by many-sided polygons but they are not the same thing. You are a math tutor and you try to bring god into math? Quit your tutoring as you are unable to separate knowledge from belief.

"God made the integers, all else is the work of man" Leopold Kronecker

You seriously misunderstood my post. I apologize if I phrased the sentence about circles so as to make you believe I didn't know what I was talking about. Still, it seems a little hasty to make assumptions about me and what I know, particularly when you are unfamiliar with such a common quote by a famous mathematician. Particularly in light of your blatant thread necromancy. I'm beginning to wonder whether I should ask you to stomp if any of this is getting through.

For what it's worth, here's another (less famous) quote that I feel is appropriate in light of GrimJack's last post:

"...misunderstandings and neglect create more confusion in this world than trickery and malice. At any rate, the last two are certainly much less frequent."

Hey, I can't read your mind (and probably would not want to) - if you were quoting something or someone, make an attribution so we can all share in your erudition. I have a head full of quotes by famous people some of whom are mathematicians and many who are not, the neurons to fire when I read that god reference was s/he does not play with dice. If you had made an attribution or at least put it in quotes, I woulda googled it.

Eh. Beats me. cwarn sort of reminds me of myself, if I didn't know anything about math.

All we know that PI = 22/7. But how and why it is 22/7 rather other fractions?

It is the ratio of circles Circumference to the diameter or it can be the ratio of area of a circle to square of its radius....

You can practically calculate it for yourself by taking a string of known length and making a perfect circle.Then calculate the diameter of the circle.once you have it, you already know the length which is equal to the circumference.

Divide them both and you will have the value of pi=(Circumference/Diameter).

That makes me wonder what is the Circumference and diameter of a perfect circle. Two numbers you can divide to get the infinit length of pi accurately.

Found a more accurate ratio to get pie.
355622/113198 = 3.14159260764
Pi value from above = 3.1415926
I'm such a genius.

There is not a perfect circumference and diameter - all circles and their associated diameters will give you pi (see proof here).

Pythagoras was a crackpot religious fanatic who stumbled onto mathematics as a way to prove the validity of his philosophy/religion. He discovered the mathematics of music by calculating the relationship of the length of stringed instruments and how they related to tones an octave apart. His math was such an integral part of his religion that an acolyte had to practice his teachings for years before they got to learn math. He believed in metempsychosis and so did not eat meat and his disdain for beans lead to his death. After his death, his followers hid pi because it was irrational.

but I digress
