Simple trig is the ratio between the three lengths of a right angle triangle.
The papyrus you are so intrigued about includes ratios of length.

But they "are" the original AE layouts...not mine !

This tells you what is contained within the papyrus...not the mathematical limits of the individual who wrote it.

This is the second time; may I remind you...that you are misrepresenting my work.
If you want to claim that I use 10 decimal calculations then do it elsewhere...not on this site. Those who have followed my posting over the years know that I frown upon that very thing.

I'm curious...where did you get the 3.16 from?

Problem is Jammer, you must try to discover the importance of 3.16, so we’ll do what the AE did...

3+1/6 added 3+1/6 times is equal to:

3+1/6 + 3+1/6 + 3+1/6 + 3/6 + 1/36 = 10+1/36 = (10.028 decimal)

Square root of 10 is approximately 3.16...nothing to do with the number pi.
