-.- i thought it would be something like that, wasn't the radius 11.2?

pi * (2 * 11.2) = 70.371675440411

70.336 would be a radius of 11.1943221 or a pi of exactly 3.14, both of which are wrong

3.14 x (2 x 11.20)

3.14 x 22.40 = 70.336

This is why I got it wrong. I used the 'pi' calculator button

In the next version, try to make the game accept multiple answers. I didn't finish the game just because I entered the whole answer in P2 instead of what you wanted.

I think this game is an awesome idea.  I can't seem to download it though.  I think you should try make it a web game to get more people to play, but I'm impressed that you got a working game!

pi is not 3.14, you should never use 3.14 as anything other than an estimate and you should never use estimates as answers to questions that don't say "estimate"

many people got it right without problems, its part of the puzzle, to find the correct pi/answer, through trial and error. expect more of these cases/situations in version 2.

Couldn't you just round whatever number is used before comparing it to the "correct" answer?
