... whereas it's quite easy to make Pi=4 using mathematics.
Consider the metric space where distance between two points is the greater of the x-distance and the y-distance. This is actually quite well-defined.
A circle is the set of all points that are at the same distance from another point known as the centre.
In our metric space the lines x = 1 and x = -1 (-1 <= y <= 1) and the lines y = 1 and y = -1 (-1 <= x <= 1) are all the points at a distance of 1 from the origin. Therefore they form a circle of radius 1. The diameter is 2, the circumference is 8. Pi is defined as the ratio of the circumference to the diameter, i.e. 4
The area of this circle is 2x2 = 4. The area of a circle of unit radius is Pi - also giving a value of 4 for Pi.
