# Sunday 160-Do You Know a Guy Called Pi?

“Do you know a guy called pi?”
“Pie?”
“Do you know the area of a unit circle?”
“No,not possible.”
“Have you heard of a number called pi?”
“Pi? Oh, My!”

Trigonometry π radians = 180 degrees

π (sometimes written pi) is a mathematical constant whose value is the ratio of any circle’s circumference to its diameter in Euclidean space; this is the same value as the ratio of a circle’s area to the square of its radius. It is approximately equal to 3.141593 in the usual decimal notation (see the table for its representation in some other bases). The constant is also known as Archimedes Constant, although this name is rather uncommon in modern, western, English-speaking contexts. Many formulae from mathematics, science, and engineering involve π, which is one of the most important mathematical and physical constants.[5]

π is an irrational number, which means that its value cannot be expressed exactly as a fraction m/n, where m and n are integers. Consequently, its decimal representation never ends or repeats. It is also a transcendental number, which implies, among other things, that no finite sequence of algebraic operations on integers (powers, roots, sums, etc.) can be equal to its value; proving this was a late achievement in mathematical history and a significant result of 19th century German mathematics. Throughout the history of mathematics, there has been much effort to determine π more accurately and to understand its nature; fascination with the number has even carried over into non-mathematical culture.

You are a woman after my own heart. “Why wait until tomorrow to do what you can do today.” I am a firm believer in this saying. Great post my beautiful young friend. I am afraid that I am a woman of many words. LOL

6. I just bought some Julian Pi Company Cherry Pi. It is 3.14159 times better than any other pi company’s pi.

The circle with its radius
Is made to be an aid to us,
A pizza has a radius
& also is a Pie for us.
we can measure it you see
before we eat it along with tea.

1. SPACE is included,

please copy and paste the whole content to the link on the bottom of the post to check,
I use this web tool to measure.

I know if I use microsoft word tool to measure, things will be different as well.
