PI DAY


Hey! We have another interesting date. It's PI day! Today is


3/14/15



PI day (March 14, 3/14) happens once a year, but this special PI day (3/14/15) happens only once a century!

Today it would also be


3/14 1:59:26.5358979

at approximately 1:59:26.5358979 AM or PM.



PI = π

is the ratio of the circumference of a circle to its diameter (or to 2 times its radius) or:


circumference =  π. * diameter ( = 2 * π * radius)


The value of PI to 16 digits is...


3.1415926535897932


PI is an irrational number, which means that when you write it as a decimal there is no limit to the number of digits: it is infinitely long.  (That's why the time above is approximate.) Here's the value of PI to a million digits:
