Name: Math.CAKE - the best thing since PI Author: senocular: www.senocular.com Date: 1899-12-31T00:07:16.100 Documentation: Back in the good old days, everyone made PIs. There was nothing better than a good old fasioned home made PI. Everyone made them. Life was good. However, sometimes you need a change. Thats where bakers came in. They presented people with a new array of delicious goods, mainly the PI's counterpart, the CAKE. Similar to PIs CAKES were round in shape. However, because CAKES were sold and distributed, they needed to be boxed, where as PIs, being made and eaten at home, simply existed in a round dish (hense the PIs association with circles). Thus there existed a need for calculating box sizes and "circumference". Here is where Math.CAKE comes into play. Given any square diagonal (d), when multiplied by Math.CAKE will result in the squares "circumference" or rather the total length of its perimeter. P = d*CAKE; ;) Example: perimeter = diagonal*Math.CAKE;
Math.CAKE = Math.SQRT2*2;
