In 1737, a mathematician named Euler used the symbol for 'pi' to be equal to the ratio of the circumference to the diameter in a circle.

Many mathematicians and math classes celebrate Pi Day every 14th of March.

`1:59pm`

is a common celebration time; however, the playing should probably occur at`1:59am`

instead.## Einstein's Birthday

Albert Einstein was born on 14 March 1879 and he died on 18 April 1955.

## Ultimate Pi Moment

The value of 'pi' approximates

`3.141592654`

.The ultimate 'pi' moment (using American-style date format) was

`3/14/1592 at 6:54am`

. [source:: Wikipedia.org]## Exercises

- Compute how old Einstein was when he died.
- Round the value of
`pi`

(`3.141592654`

) to the nearest thousandth.- Write the value of
`pi`

(`3.141592654`

) as a mixed number.A bit more ϖ...

With respect to a circle: A = ϖ * R^{2}C = ϖ * D C = ϖ * 2 * R where A is Area, R is radius, D is diameter, C is circumferencePretend circle

`foo`

has a radius of`5 meters`

and circle`farkle`

has a diameter of`8 feet`

RoadHacker has been in New Mexico many times. Spring Break 2005 has RoadHacker returning to New Mexico for a four day roadtrip that will approximate

`1320 miles`

in length. {RoadHacker:: US Hwy-60 and US Hwy-70 Across New Mexico}RoadHacker has timed the roadtrip so that he will be in eating pie in Pie Town, New Mexico, on Pi Day. There is a chance that RoadHacker will be in Pie Town at 1:59pm, but this is not a must do. { map}
