comment Does 1st Kings say that pi = 3?
I'm starting to assume this is the brim-protruding-outside argument, which I think is the most believable one of those assuming exact values of 30.0 and 10.0. It's just worded in a way that I have a hard time understanding (ESL, sorry).

@MukeTever I don't understand what you're saying. If the circumference were 30 and the real diameter 9.55, then measuring the diameter on the inside of a .225-thick wall would yield 9.10. Can you clarify?

comment Does 1st Kings say that pi = 3?
Considering the range of widely spread explanations, and how some non-obvious and counterintuitive explanations are repeated over and over again, I think this is a very good question.
