Brings back a memory of college days, when the nonsense contest for the "brothers" during hazing days, was to pit memory masters freshmen from each fraternity against each other... how many correct digits in a row?

Let no post go unpunished...

Please do not arrive early.

P.S. I was wondering why I was feeling a little irrational today.

My local coffee hangout is offering a piece of its gourmet pie for $3.14 to anybody who can give them the first five digits of Pi. :-)

We had enough problems just getting the pledges to learn the greek alphabet and being able to recite it back........

For the engineers and scientists, happy Pi day wishes

Suppose one has the need or urge to know what the millionth digit of Pi is. Does any of you know how to find out?

It's easy if you have Mathematica installed on your PC!

Most of us would consider that an irrational request.

There is no Pi Day for our friends in Europe, because it's 14/3 there, not 3/14.

But they can celebrate Pi Approximation Day on July 22....

That millionth digit is a "1" according to Mathematica. Just so everybody knows.

See: https://reference.wolfram.com/mathematica/ref/Pi.html.

So glad you posted that. I would have lain awake all night wondering if you hadn't.

Well, then perhaps someone on this forum also knows whether "pi to the e" ( pi^e ) is transcendental or not. Of course, "e to the pi" (e^pi) has already been proven to be transcendental.

If you can submit your proof to settle this century old mystery, you will be inducted to the Hall of Fame of mathematicians.

...
I had to look up what a transcendental number was. And it does not have anything to do with teeth.

Now I'm curious to know NW-Bound about that "Of course" you added. Do you actually get into this stuff? I don't think I've ever come across the need for pi^e nor transcendental numbers.

Now pi is a useful thing.

No, but I do get kind of a chill down my spine when I contemplate Euler's Identity.
