Hi, it’s me again.
And today I’m going to talk about one of the most famous Entrance Examination
in the history of Tokyo University and the question is very simple
prove that \(\pi\) is larger than 3.05 .
And we the Japanese students have been taught that \(\pi\) is nearly equal to 3.14
and since middle school we’ve been calculating like area of a circle or
you know circumference of a circle with using 3.14.
So we are not allowed to use calculators.
So that’s how we’ve been calculating you know everything
that’s related to circles.
In this question Tokyo University is challenging you with a number
that you’d been you took it for granted for like more than ten years.
But they’re asking do you know the exact definition of \(\pi\)
or how you derive you know number 3.14
and it’s a very interesting question.
The definition of \(\pi\)
So let’s get on with it
so first we have to understand the definition of \(\pi\)
and suddenly not many people know the exact definition of \(\pi\)
so if you draw a circle there will be a diameter and a circumference, right?
So \(\pi\) is defined as the circumference divided by the diameter
Well, with me if the spelling was wrong though this is definition of \(\pi\)
and because every single circle would look exactly the same
so even if you have a diameter of one centimeters
or even if you have a diameter of 500 meters,
the ratio of the around circumference will be exactly the same
so fly will be a constant and that constant that isn’t nothing
to be a 3.1415…
You know infinitely continuing
so that’s the basic I mean that’s definition of \(\pi\).
Okay so now on to the solutions this looks a little bit weird.
But how the ancient people like you know making
Greek people derived \(\pi\) without you know super computers
that we have,
right now the strategy those ancient people were using is a very simple
so what doing what they were doing back then is that
they would draw a rough perhaps I can
you know for example that they would plug draw a rough square
that would politically fit the circle and
also they would draw example of a hexagon inside
inside a circle, inside this circle soon
and what they would do is that they would you know measure
the perimeter of the square
so what they would do is that they would measure the perimeter
of the square and also they would measure the perimeter of this hexagon inside.
And because this hexagon’s perimeter is a little bit lessen
and because this square’s perimeter is a little bit more than this circle
if they divide both perimeter is the diameter
they would be able to you know like sandwich the puppet like pioneer deacon
you know roughly speculate the amount of \(\pi\).
So perimeter of square divided by the diameter radius
so to our perimeter
thanks again divided it by the diameter must sandwich the \(\pi\), right?
circumference of a circle 円周
took it for granted 当たり前の事と思う
let’s get on with it それ（問題）をやっていこう（解いていこう）
now on to それでは
