Split from Strange connection between phi and pi

I watched the video, and it comes down to \( \pi \approx 6\phi^2/5.\) The RHS is about \(3.141640786\) so it is not too bad.

An author of a paper on Angle Trisection in last year's issue of the same journal, The Journal of Advances in Mathematics, is convinced that the correct value of \(\pi\) is exact \(3.14\). Don't know whether they will clash, or settle on some average as a compromise >:D

The value of pi is not something people decide on.  It simply comes from its definition.

Pi is transcendental, phi is algebraic.  It is very hard to see a connection.

Both were originally defined geometrically.

Pi = 5 arccos (.5 Phi)
