You Forgot the “e”!

3.14159265…How did someone get those numbers? “What are those numbers,” one might ask? Those randomly ordered numbers are not so random, they are actually the solution to 22/7, imagesand they go on forever. They are the digits of Pi, π and were first discovered by an Ancient Greek Mathematician of Syracuse, who gave a close estimation of what Pi is today. Pi is widely mistaken to be another subject taught in school and appears to be useless when being used in a math class, but its use is major. Pi is used in careers that make our everyday lives, si240px-Prince-of-pimple and easy, such as astronomy, physics, engineering and architecture. Without any of those jobs, life today would be impossible. So why not celebrate it? Larry Shaw, a physicist, organized the first celebration of Pi March 14, of 1988, in San Francisco, but became national on the 22nd of July 2009. Well when is Pi day? The correct guess would be 3/14 or March 14, but Pix-wide-communityonce every century people can celebrate not only the first three numbers of Pi but the first five, March 14th of –15. So readers who didn’t celebrate it this year, you’ve always got a chance next year.
