 July 4th, 2017, 01:29 AM #3 Senior Member   Joined: Apr 2014 From: Glasgow Posts: 2,119 Thanks: 710 Math Focus: Physics, mathematical modelling, numerical and computational solutions So your problem statement is basically this: If the circumferences of a square and circle are defined as $\displaystyle c_1$ and $\displaystyle c_2$, the diagonal of a square is defined as $\displaystyle d_1$ and the diameter of a circle is defined as $\displaystyle d_2$, then $\displaystyle \frac{c_1}{c_2} = \frac{d_1}{d_2}$ This can be disproved by counter-example. Select $\displaystyle d_1$ and $\displaystyle d_2$ to be a value $\displaystyle a$. We should therefore expect the ratio $\displaystyle \frac{c_1}{c_2}$ to be 1. However: $\displaystyle c_1 = 4\frac{d_1}{\sqrt{2}} = 2 \sqrt{2} a$ $\displaystyle c_2 = \pi d_2 = \pi a$ Therefore the ratio $\displaystyle \frac{c_1}{c_2} = \frac{2 \sqrt{2} a}{ \pi a} = \frac{2 \sqrt{2}}{\pi} \approx 0.900316$, which is not equal to 1.

Square circumference.......c Square diagonal............... d Subject - Squares: c 1 = 3 mm , c 2 = 137 mm Prove that: c 1 \ c 2 = d 1 \ d 2 and this is separate proof Circle circumference .......... c Circle diameter .................. d Subject - Circles: c 1 = 3 mm , c 2 = 137 mm Prove that: c 1 \ c 2 = d 1 \ d 2 Thanks
 July 4th, 2017, 07:13 AM #5 Banned Camp   Joined: Jul 2010 Posts: 118 Thanks: 0 The proof of the squares Square circumference.......c Square diagonal............... d Subject - Squares: c 1 = 3 mm , c 2 = 137 mm Prove that: c 1 : c 2 = d 1 : d 2 c 1 = 3 , d 1 = root of 2 *( 3 : 4 ) c 2 = 137 , d 2 = root of 2 *( 137 : 4 ) c 1 : c 2 = 3 : 137 d 1 : d 2 = root of 2 *( 3 : 4 ) : root of 2 *(137 : 4) = 3 : 137 Now remains to present the proof of circles Circle circumference.......c Circle diameter............... d Subject - Circles: c 1 = 3 mm , c 2 = 137 mm Prove that: c 1 : c 2 = d 1 : d 2

 July 4th, 2017, 08:14 AM #9 Banned Camp   Joined: Jul 2010 Posts: 118 Thanks: 0 Right, Euclid proved about squares but Archimedes did not prove, about circles The proof of circles c 1 : c 2 = d 1 : d 2 , simply does not exist.

I linked an example in one of your threads the other day. I'm not surprised that you don't accept it because you refuse to accept $\pi$ as a constant, but that's your problem not anyone else's.
