Divisional Segmentation

Divisional Segmentation


In this article I purpose the use of triangulation, divisional segmentation, mathematical logic and scientific method to create a comparison of accuracy to define the area and circumference of a circle or sphere.

Question One:

Is divisional segmentation more accurate for the precise calculation of the area and circumference of a circle or sphere?

Question two:

If the use of 3.14159265358979323846264 is correct is it mathematically usable to calculate the area or circumference of a 360 degree circle or sphere?


I first conducted this mathematical calculation without researching previous calculations and after identifying a whole number of divisional segmentations which functions, then a search was conduct where I discovered that Babylon had concluded the same information. Where I found a nonprofit organization detailing historical information about the origins and history of Pi. This information was found on:


That the use of divisional segmentation is more accurate when calculating the circumference or area of a circle or sphere in reference to today’s representation of 3.14159265358979323846264.

Calculation Experiment:

(Defining divisional segmentation intervals using mathematical methods)

Let’s begin:

Here is defined a simple concept for segmentation of a 360 degree circle or sphere verified forwards and backwards using division and multiplication.

An interesting calculation occurs at 360 divided by 115.2



So, our segmentation at 115.2 of the 360 degree circle of sphere ends on a whole number directly at 3.125. No repeats and no irrational actions.

But how can we use this?

If 1 equal 360 this is the completed circle or sphere. We can then start to use this to create an area calculation.

81 x 3.125 = 253.125/360 = 0.703125

This says that each degree from a 360 circle or sphere is a segment of 0.703125 of the area 253.125.

The area of 253.125 contains at each degree a measurement of 0.703125 and completes a 360 degree circle or sphere.

So, if we do not want to use a decimal point function, we can use two whole numbers:

360/1152 = 0.3125

Zu Chongzhi (429–501) 355 at 113 not quite, 360 at 1152 is the correct answer.

Egyptians calculated the area of a circle by a formula that gave the approximate value of 3.1605 for Pi.

One Babylonian tablet (ca. 1900–1680 BC) indicates a value of 3.125 for Pi which is a closer approximation. (This is correct at 360/1152)

Let’s reduce this and see what happens:

360/2 = 180

180/2 = 90

90/2 = 45

This is where we lose our whole number so let’s calculate this from 360.

360/45 = 8

360/8 = 45



Is equal to when reduced using only whole numbers



Reducing this further removes the whole number which we want to maintain so no irrationality

appears and for simplicity.

So, let’s attempt to use this divisional segmentation for calculation:

360 = 253.125

253.125/45 = 5.625

5.625/8 = 0.703125

0.703125x360 = 253.125

Here we reduce the numbers to the lowest and back to determine accuracy without loss of data.

Before we move on, I want to explain this next bit of information. The number 3.125 is not an ending point of the number. The number actually continues but because the calculation and methods used for mathematics don’t include the remaining information, we assume it ends. It actually looks like



Let's start by extracting and triangulating our comparison with Egypt at 3.16 now how did they get this number?

1/360 = 0.00277777777 x114 = 0.31666666578

Now when you calculate that backwards its over 360 its 361. (calculator flaw)

So, 3.16 is close but not quite. We don't want irrational (333666777999) numbers here so let's go backwards and verify it.

3.16 x 114 = 360.24 <--- we are so close but not quite.

The .24 remains over 360 so we regress again by reducing the number by one. We will use the process of elimination:

3.15 x 114 =359.1 <--- we went to low.

3.155 x 114 = 359.67 <--- here its higher

3.1559 x 114 = 359.7726 <--- almost but not there yet.

3.156 x 114 = 359.784 <---- bit more

3.157 x 114=359.898 <---we are so close!

3.1577 x 114 = 359.9778 <--not yet.

You continue this process till you reach 3.15789473684210526 by adding an additional number by

increasing by 1 digit without allowing the process to go over the desired 360.

Let's do this all together:

1/360 is 0.0027777777 x 114 = 0.31666666666

0.31666666666 x 360 = 114 divided by 360 - 0.31666666666

I think this is what Egypt used to identify the 3.16 at 114 markers.

So, 3.16 x 114 =360.24

360.2400/114 = 3.16 when entered into a calculator.

So, math says we remove this from the remainder through even segmentation.

0.2400/114 =0.002105263157894736

Now we subtract from 3.16 and you get 3.15789473684210526315789474

3.15789473684210526315789474x114 = 360.00000000000000000000000036

3.15789473684210526315789473x114 =


This is a fluctuating number which identifies that the correct number exists between a difference of

less then 1.

When this is repeated you reduce the number, it continues to repeat 3.15789473684210526 which identifies it as a digit between 26 and 27 as shown below.

3.15789473684210526x114 = 359.99999999999999964

3.15789473684210527x114 = 360.00000000000000078

Remember this is a fluctuating number which identifies that the correct number exists between a difference of less then 1.

Now let’s confirm this number another way:

360 divided by 114 gives us a repeating digit of 3.15789473684210526 which mathematically produces the mystical repeating digits of a radial curve.

360/114 = 3.15789473684210526

When calculated back using multiplication we get:

3.15789473684210526x114 = 359.99999999999999964

This gives us a remaining amount of 0.00000000000000036 which is very close.

We can then extend that digit by either allowing the repeat to continue or by extension of the original number for instance:

3.15789473684210526315789x114 = 359.99999999999999999999946

360-359.99999999999999999999946 =


0.00000000000000000000054 remains when we do this and due to its ability to be instantly reduced by the repeating digit, we can define the accuracy as far as we want beyond even the atomic scale to such an extent, we would be accurate to 1/100000 of a quark and even more if you continue to extend.

So, what do we do with our remaining number?

If we choose we may calculate that back into our total circumference or area calculations, you simply treat the remainder as the circumference or area integer and add it to your total as seen below:

360/114 = 3.15789473684210526315789

(This integer was extended but the method is the same for any)

3.15789473684210526315789x114 = 359.99999999999999999999946

360-359.99999999999999999999946 =


0.00000000000000000000054x 3.15789473684210526315789 =


We will use 81 as this is simple as area and circumference at 9x9 or diameter as 81:

81x3.15789473684210526315789 = 255.78947368421052631578909

255.78947368421052631578909+ 0.0000000000000000000017052631578947368421052606 =


Our absolute area or circumference calculation is:


Regardless of what Pi you use this method is the same.


Now let’s compare this to other Pi calculations side by side:





As you can clearly see there is a difference between these calculations.

0.0000000000000000000000000000000000000016 is the size of a Planck length.

So, using the values present we can determine at a scale in conjunction with our calculation and segmentation we can go far beyond the scale of a quark by easily repeating the digits as seen below:

81x3.15789473684210526315789473684210526315789473684210526315789473684210526315789 =


360-359.99999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999946 =











606 =




Here we are mathematically over double the calculation of a Planck length. As such you might be off by a small amount, but that amount is at a value far past the atomic structure itself. Far beyond the value of a quark. Far beyond the value of a Planck length.

To determine which calculation is true we must perform an experiment to finalize what calculation is determined to be physically correct.

Physical Experiment:

(Physical experiment proposal)

This experiment will verify the results and considering the use of 3.14159 is used today, if both the above calculations are incorrect it shall appear as the result of the below experiment. One of three

results will be verified:




Take a micrometer and a vernier caliper and a cloth measuring tape to determine using all 3 which

reverse engineered radial curve is accurate.

The experiment will use a approximate 1 inch cylinder, measured by the micrometer to obtain the

diameter. The circumference will be verified by extending the measuring tape around the cylinder

and then extending it to full length and obtaining the circumference for physical measurement using

the vernier caliper.

The calculation of the diameter will use the mathematical equation:

C= circumference

D= diameter

π= Pi

C= π x D

Where it will be checked using the following formula:

C= circumference

R= radius

π= Pi

C= 2πR

These will be verified by calculation of the area from both entries using the following formulas forward and backward:

R= D / 2

A= π * (R * R)

This will be re-verified by measuring the micrometer using the interior vernier calipers measurement to re-verify each number for accuracy.

Once all measurements and numbers are acquired and verified, we should have ourselves a quantified result of which calculation is accurate.

Diameter two: 0.4292
