Are you aware of the fact that the first 100 decimal digits of pi had already been calculated by the year 1701?
In 1706, an English mathematician introduced the Greek alphabet pi (π) to represent the said value. However, in 1737, Euler officially adopted this symbol to represent the value.
Most people are ignorant of the fact that a circle has infinite numbers of corners. The value of pi is the number of times the diameter of a circle would fit around its circumference.
The approximate value of pi is 22/7 and it is written as π=22/7 or as π=3.14.
The value of pi with first 100 decimal places is: 3.1415926535897932384626433832795028841971693993751058209749445923078164062862089986280348253421170679.
Another interesting fact is that you would not find a zero value (0) in the first 31 digits of pi.
Besides everyday geometry calculations, the value of pi is also used in numerous scientific equations.
Pi not only an irrational number but also a transcendental number.
Another interesting fact about pi is that it was taken from the Greek letter “Piwas”. It is also the 16th Greek alphabet.
The digits of pi contain all possible permutations and combinations of numbers.
In 1768, Johann Lambert proved that the value of Pi is an irrational number and in 1882, Ferdinand Lindeman, a renowned mathematician proved that Pi is a transcendental number.
There are a lot of people who memorize all the decimal digits of pi. People make up songs and music based on the digits of pi.
