# Thread: what does pi =

1. ## what does pi =

i can't find anywhere what the absolute value of pi is, does anybody know?

2. windows's calc. says

3,1415926535897932384626433832795

3. There has been no absolute value computed, AFAIK. In fact they have gone out to several hunderd decimal places and have not found a precise number. Probably never will. Kinda like the largest prime number.

Edit: Make sure your speaker is on...

Sounds like a typical physics instructor.

Edit 2: to recite all the known digits of Pi (6.4 billion digits) would take 133 years with no pause for coffee or sleep.

4. i'm pretty sure they have an exact value. there is an exact value for everything such as e, sine, cosine, tangent.

5. The value is 22/7 but this will give decimal places to the Nth degree, as the others say, there is no exact value.. not all things in life have an answer!!

lol ur right
man
why not in english
listening to it now for 3 mins or so
gets broing
but i wont stop
how long will

oh u can do it in english
cool

this is exiting

i dont get it how ppl are fining out one more digit and more
i mean what a life, what a job
how BORING
not my dream job fidning out digits

7. at digit 5000 now
ahhhh can i still hold it
all togther it takes 362 min

8. I like pie...just not THIS kind...

9. Its called an irrational number, and just like trying to express 1/3 in decimals, it simply cannot be done using our standard 10 digit decimal system, no matter how many digits you stick after the decimal point.

10. Exactly. Irrational. I'll not have any part of it... Come back when yas learn fractions. I like Pi I do sound... Basic analysis on waveforms is greatly trig... Lotsa Pi

11. Irrational numbers are numbers that neither terminate nor become periodic. Pi is indeed an irrational number. 1/3 however is not. It only meets one of the criteria and thats that it doesn't terminate. It does however repeat itself. Irrational numbers also cannot be expressed in fractions.

12. Yeah, but if ya knows what 3 is yas can get decent work.

13. 3145926 always got me bye

14. Square root of 2 too... 1.414

No dont offer a show in a tutu

15. Q? .707? 1? ... welcome ta trig...

fagedaboudit... twist the knob... it's more r less... great!
