I find it easier to memorize many digits of pi than to remember the formulas for approximations.

Also, avoid if strong language offends you. Read if math humor does not.

Who came up with pi anyway? And how do they know it's 3.14? They could have been wrong and it's 5.274, or 2.4896...

Archimedes, a mathematical physicist, found pi. Pi is what the circumference of a circle divided by its diameter is.

Wikipedia has an atricle about archimedes.

Pi day is over. It was fun watching people argue about pi, but now it is the Ides of March. Go to that thread and argue there.

Yes, but the problem is determining the digits of pi to great accuracy. Short of creating a gigantic circle in the middle of Saskatchewan and making measurements, Leibniz's formula is what we'll have to use.
