3. Recall, π is defined as the ratio of the circumference (say c) of a circle to its diameter (say d ). That is, π = dc . This seems to contradict the fact that π is irrational. How will you resolve this contradiction?

On measuring c with any device, we get only approximate measurement. Therefore, π is an irrational.
