History of Mathematics Pie
History of Pie:
The French mathematician Francois Vieta (1540-1603), the ﬁrst mathematician to us symbolic notation for known as (constants) and unknowns discovered the first direct formula for the calculation of π.
The Ancient Greek mathematician Archimedes of Syracuse (287-212 BC) is the first to calculate an accurate estimation value of pi.
Sulva Sutra also gave methods of constructing a square whose area equals the area of a given circle. The construction involved approximating π the value used is 3.088,which is quite closer to the real value of π.
