HI! PI!

Since I could not say it better in 2021, have fun checking out last year’s PI Day post. Well, uh, it’ll be fun, especially if you’re a nerd like me.

Obviously, these three digits represent the current month and day… or… as any math geek would readily inform us…

Today is…TA-DA… PI Day!

For countless generations, mathematicians have represented PI by the (more or less) equivalent fraction 22/7 OR… in other words… 22 divided by 7… which equals the close-but-no-cigar quotient…

3.1428571

Of course, when we compare that to the following, drastically abbreviated, representation of PI, well… I think we can readily agree that that above quotient is not close enough…

What will get us much closer is the fraction we’ll arrive at when we double the first three odd numbered digits 113355. Next we need to group these six digits thusly… 355 and 113… and reconfigure them as the fraction 355/113. OR… in other words this becomes… 355 divided by 113… which nets us the quotient… can somebody give us a drum roll… TA-DA…
