Squaring the circle and number π
This paper presents an attempt to finally solve the problem of constructing the squares of the same surface of the given circle, in a simple way: by determining the exact value of the number π. The value of this constant thus far implies the following: in the Universe there is no square of the same surface as the given circle!? It's pointless. The number π is not irrational, so it is not transcendental number either.
