Finding the Approximete of π (Math)

A circle is a set of points that are equidistant from the center point O. The distance r from the center is called the radius, and. Twice the radius is known as the diameter d = 2 r.

we did this activity on finding the π, by finding the circumference of an object using a string, and find the diameter using a ruler.
