Proposition 3[edit]

The text does not fully describe Archimedes method of progressively doubling the number of sides of a regular hexagon, and the image certainly doesn't relate to this. See Archimedes, and Archimedes Talk. Sceptic1954 (talk) 20:48, 3 October 2012 (UTC)

Proposition 2[edit]

The proposition as written seems to say that pi/4 = 11/14, which is certainly not true. Is this a typo of some kind? — Preceding unsigned comment added by 130.237.198.164 (talk) 10:17, 15 January 2014 (UTC)
