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.

    There are an infinite number of finite sequences

    REALLY !!!!!!!!!!

    now I know your way out of your depth.

    IF.. there is an infinite number of finite sequences it will be really easy to have all of those finite sequences contained within an infinite sequence of non-repeating numbers.

    you've proven false your own (confused) argument, in fact that infinite set of 'finite' sequences will occur an infinite number of time within an infinite sequence of numbers (such as pi). If fact the set of infinite sequences with pi could be larger than the infinite size of pi.

    Yes, set of infinites can be larger or smaller that other sets of infinities.

    I hope that clears that up for you Mr Ho.
