Pi Day. Some facts

Resultado de imagen de pi day fun facts
Pi Day is celebrated on March 14th (3/14) around the world. Pi (Greek letter “π”) is the symbol used in mathematics to represent a constant — the ratio of the circumference of a circle to its diameter — which is approximately 3.14159.
Pi has been calculated to over one trillion digits beyond its decimal point. As an irrational and transcendental number, it will continue infinitely without repetition or pattern. While only a handful of digits are needed for typical calculations, Pi’s infinite nature makes it a fun challenge to memorize, and to computationally calculate more and more digits.

Pi Day was created in 1988 by physicist Larry Shaw. It’s since become an international day, celebrated around the world.
March 14 is also Albert Einstein’s birthday.
