What is Pi?
Believe-it-or-not, pi isn’t pie. I would not fancy eating infinite numbers. That’s right — pi is infinitely indivisible and has never been divided evenly, an unsettled permanently repeating pattern.
Pi comes from the Greek letter π, though it is called pi (pronounced — you guessed it — pie). Approximations are used to solve equations with this number, such as: 3.14, 3.1416, 3.14159, and as a fraction, 22/7. In math class, you may remember the common finding of the area of a circle, (π)(r)2, or pi times r squared.
Humans still have the desire to calculate pi. Supercomputers using algorithms are used to finally crack the code, although no one has ever solved it.
Therefore, Pi Day is recognized on 3/14. In fact, the House of Representatives support the designation of Pi Day in 2009.
Due to the homophone between pi and pie, puns have involved with throwing pies, eating pies, and discussing the significance in accordance with this number.
