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.

    Re: Re: Re: Pi

    Despite the insults, you have not proven your assertion. Non-repeating infinite strings of numbers do not necessarily contain every finite sequence of numbers. A simple example: there could be an infinitely long string of numbers that NEVER contained the sequence 1234567890. Perhaps pi does or does not contain that sequence, but there are an infinite number of finite sequences -- it's difficult to really know.

    If you can prove it, by all means, post your solution here!
