...just as 180 stands for the number one hundred and eighty, and for nothing else. * 30. "We proceed to **prove that the ratio of the circumference of a circle to its diameter is the same for all circles.** The proof depends on the following important principle ; The length of the circumference of a circle... | |

...doubled ; or, if the diameter be trebled, the circumference will also be trebled ; and BO on. It follows **that the ratio of the circumference of a circle to its diameter is the same for all circles.** The exact value of this ratio cannot be expressed by numbers, but the value near enough for most practical... | |
