another number for pi
Posted: Aug 2, 2013 3:34 AM

the numbers that i have found are :157,25,50,100,300 but the most importand is 157
------------------
examples:
------------------
circumference of a circle:C=2pi.r

6.28x6=37.68
using these numbers:157x6/25=37.68

6.28x79=496.12
using these numbers:157x79/25=496.12

6.28x258=1,620.24
using these numbers:157x258/25=1,620.24
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
area of a circle:A=pi.r^2

3.14x8^2=200.96
157x8^2/50=200.96
-------------------------------------------------
volume of a sphere: V=4pi.r^3/3

12.56x8^3/3=2,143.573333
157x8^4/300=2,143.573333
--------------------------------------------------
surface area of a sphere:SA=4pi.r^2

12.56x8^2=803.84
157x8^3/100=803.84
---------------------------------
therefore 157/50=3.14
157/25=6.28
if interested what is the secret behind this number give me a buzz at
gothictower00@yahoo.com much happy to explain!!
