I guess, you don't get it, the use of the symbol for pi, so that the relations are very simple.
any approximation of pi by the method of Archimedes, using successive multiplication by two, which is compassconstructible, jut gets closer to the "real" value of pi.
Gauss uncovered the importance of the Fermat primes, so, you may as well start with the inscribed and circumscribed 65537gon (2^(2^h) + 1, h = 0, 1, 2, 3; this is the only problem de Fermatttt that is still open, although we still need his proof of "le theorem fernier"
