Back then, measurements weren't as precise or accurate. So Solomon's temple was most likely slightly less than 10 cubits and slightly more than 30 cubits, but that's what they rounded to anyway. Either that or the "cubits" were different, like they usually were back then.
Wait. Thirty cubits in diameter, not in circumference. There's something wrong here...
Pikabeng speaks the truth, pi is not used to find the diameter of a circle. Only circumfrence and area. Ergo, it doesn't matter.
And the point of numbers like pi and e that have no end is for precision. 3x5=15. pix5=18.85.
