Bottom line seems to beThe theory is that it is impossible
That's roughly 0.3% out, then? 0.3% bigger, in fact. That, according to you in another thread, makes it "much" bigger, and therefore can not be considered "close enough". So hoisted by your own petard, methinks.
Furthermore, the challenge of "squaring the circle" is not one where "close enough" has merit: either one does it, or one does not. The theory is that it is impossible. Not that you can get "close enough".
It is certainly slower, by 0.1%. That is not "much slower" at all. It is, for almost all practical purposes, a reduction that can be ignored.
0.1% variance can usually be ignored for most practical matters, but for theoretical matters where the idea is to show that something can be done, a miss (e.g. 0.1%) is as good as a mile, so they say. So all about context, and you, the person who said they wouldn't respond to me again, have it backward in both contexts.So according to you, .3% is something that can be ignored? Or are you now saying that is too much?
Apart from those that have, you mean?Nobody in the history of the world has ever been closer!
Thanks Alexa.you are a cheat! A fraud! A CRANK!
...which you wrote in post 42....... three pages ago.Alexa show me an example of projection.
Thanks Alexa.
If anyone is confused by Motor Daddy's bafflegab just note that 0.3333.... = 0.3 + 0.03 + 0.003 + 0.0003 + .... which is a geometric series \(0.3+(0.1)\times 0.3+(0.1)^2\times 0.3+(0.1)^3\times 0.3+\ldots\) then go and look up the infinite sum of a geometric series with first term a = 0.3 and common ratio r = 0.1.

If you want to read it as Alexa show me an example of trolling be my guest.Though in my opinion he's only pretending to be a crank: he's a troll.

Well technically 99.999...% is 100%which is 99.999...% not 100%

1 Whole pizza cut into 3 pieces [snip]
If you want to cut it into 3 equal pieces YOU CAN'T DO IT!
So, you are claiming that you cannot divide a circle (pizza) into three slices of equal area, geometrically??
I am claiming you can not divide 100% equally into 3 parts.
Okay, so let's start with the number three. 100% of the number three is 3.
So if you want to divide 100% of that up into three equal parts, couldn't you just divide three by three and get 1?
100% of the number three is 3.
