@RiotDemon@rockblossom At first I was getting increasingly annoyed that she gave the date as the first six digits. Well played. I guess I must be πOCD.
If the video was one second longer it would have been 3:14 - wonder if that was the aim?
@IcePopBOD “If you know the diameter of the observable Universe and you want to calculate its circumference with the accuracy of the diameter of a proton, the number of digits of pi that you need is 43.”
You would need only 60 digits to calculate it to the accuracy of a Planck length.
@IcePopBOD@PocketBrain And most high school students who take the SAT, ACT, or undergrads who take the G-MAT only need to know it to 2 digits. I’d suspect that that is only to the accuracy of the smallest hole circle a cockroach can fit through.
@Limewater Also kind of interesting: In Greek, they actually pronounce the character ‘π’ with a short ‘i’ sound, like we pronounce the letter ‘p.’ However, a co-worker of mine is Greek and I asked him about this, and he said he pronounces it like “pie” when using it in a math context just because that is the convention.
