Circle Squaring - Ramanujam 8 Decimal Solution

Ramanujam's solution to the ancient circle squaring problem set the benchmark with regards to level of fidelity possible to achieve using strict compass and ruler constructions. Using the GeoGebra software application I and my team were able to push the level of fidelity for this problem to 16 digits using strict compass and ruler construction protocols. While this problem can not be solved using strict compass and ruler construction techniques, exploration of the construct of approximate solutions to this problem has offered insight into other aspects of geometry and math. My team has authored a paper with regards to this particular problem which will be made available upon request.
