The solution is very long , you need to use calculus to prove that pi is irrational this Video prove that in the same way i proved it. A K · 2 years, 1 month ago

This is the paper which shows how to use elementary calculus to show that \( \pi \) is irrational. The sequence of steps is quite short.

I was (and still am) very impressed by it. It is not obvious to me why the construction of \( f(x) \) works. Calvin Lin Staff · 2 years, 1 month ago

The easiest answer to this is

Keep on dividing pi until you get tired. Then you will automatically get introduced to the fact that pi is irrational. This was using "School level mathematics"
