An Anomaly?

…We have a 37# wheel & a 38 # wheel: Are both wheels the same
circumference?..and by the way: How is it possible an odd number
like 37 equal pieces can comfortably fit inside this 360 degree circle?

37 equal pieces? Not exactlt.
What about the space (rim / “wall”) between them…?


why would 360-degree matter?

Only if you want each pocket to take 10.
360/37 = 9.73

…Last I heard the roulette wheel is still round in appearance…& I believe that 360 degrees still makes a round circle…If you have 36 different numbers as in our wheel, one has a perfect fit, 10% each, doesn’t one? How about we do our magic and explain how one can have a perfect fit within our 360 degree circle if we have 37 different numbers?..

it’s not 10%

Already tried to explain in the post above.
For you perfect roulette wheel would be that each number takes 10 degrees, but it doesn’t have to be on a 37 numbers distribution each number takes ~9.73 degrees.

…I just did the math: 37 x 9.73 = 360.01 degrees: not a perfect circle?


I am sure that Forester indicated to you that his calculation was approximate?
A standard use of ~ is to mean approximate.
If you wish to redo your math then use 9.729729729729730


…I’ll take your word for it…

The 37 pockets on the wheel fit in because they’re not all the same size , some are smaller and allow for that odd number to do its thing in the 360-degree dance
