Assume we know nothing of Pi's actual value.  Apparently, we think it is some random number generated by a calculator every time the Pi button is pressed.  All we know that is 2*Radius*Pi is the circumference of a circle and pi*radius*radius is area.  Use a unit circle to prove that Pi is >3 and <4.

Since it has long been accepted that the proof is in the pudding, not in the pi, perhaps the puzzle is not solvable.

The greatest challenge to any thinker is stating the problem in a way that will allow a solution.
