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. If you'd like to read more awesome and interesting stuff, check out this unrelated (but not entirely random!) Techdirt post.

    pi is 3.1415

    so 31415 would be a sequence of numbers.. RIGHT AT THE START..

    it also occurs in position 88,008

    73520514593330496265 31415 14138612443793588507

    "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).
