# DailyDirt: Pi Math

### from the *urls-we-dig-up* dept

National Pie Day is not actually March 14th (although it really should be, if only to make it more memorable). But here's to the number, not the delicious dessert.
- Does pi contain every set of finite number sequences? The answer to that question may not be known, but the first trillion or so digits of pi appear to be statistically random -- with 0-9 appearing with even distributed frequency. [url]
- It's possible to calculate the nth digit of pi without calculating every previous digit. So the gazillionth digit of pi can be verified, if you really need to know it. [url]
- If you're thinking about coming up with a new way to calculate pi, you can check your work for the first several trillion digits. Beyond about 10 trillion digits, you're into record breaking territory, and you'll need to adopt some other strategies. [url]

Anonymous Coward,14 Feb 2013 @ 6:34pmso 31415 would be a sequence of numbers.. RIGHT AT THE START..

it also occurs in position 88,008

73520514593330496265

3141514138612443793588507"1234567" occurs at position 9,470,344

LESS THAT 10 MILLION and you get 1234567

you get "12345678" at position 186,557,266

what about '88888888' yes at position 46,663,520

and that is only in the first 200 million digits of Pi, infinity smaller than the size of pi. (which is infinite).
