As a child, you may recall learning about Pi in math class. Remembering the term may have triggered a smell of your grandmother’s baked pies. However, that isn’t quite what your math teacher meant during that lesson.
Pi is approximately 3.142 and it is the circumference of any circle that is divided by its diameter. The word Pi comes from the Greek letter π. It is pronounced “pie” and is one of the most common constants in math.
To arrive at pi, you must correctly use the formula. The circumference of a circle is found using the formula C= π*d = 2* π*r. When using a calculator to compute pi, the results should always be approximately 3.14.
Several math lovers have dubbed March 14 or 3/14 as the day to honor the infamous mathematical constant. However, unlike the date, Pi cannot be written like a fraction since it is an infinite number.
No other math formula is as popular as Pi. It was discovered long ago that Pi turns out as an irrational number and its exact value is not known. However, its formula stands strong in mathematics for centuries.
