Right, 4 is not the correct digit, and I was intent on 3 there. I was in front of my computer practicing "print screen" as the seconds at time.gov rolled by, until this fateful moment. I told a friend about this yesterday and his reply -- "oh, I could photoshop that ..."Quote:RSQuote:teliot2015 was the best PI day ever ... here is my proof, March 14, 2015 at 9:26:53.

I applaud you for not rounding pi up to 3.141592654.

Is the following true? If they had found that after 100 decimal places, say, pi was all zeroes, that would mean it was not an irrational number after all?Quote:teliot"PI" is conjectured to be a normal number, which is a number that has all integers appearing somewhere in its decimal expansion according to its expected frequency. Aside from PI being transcendental, almost nothing is known about its decimal expansion.

Yes that would not be an irrational number.Quote:odiousgambitIs the following true? If they had found that after 100 decimal places, say, pi was all zeroes, that would mean it was not an irrational number after all?

Happy pi day, and thanks, Miplet, for the table generator.

This is probably cheeky to ask, but I wonder if Miplet could modify his table generator so that the data entries are centered within the columns.

Its not enough to be good. Its also important to look good.

He could and did. http://miplet.net/table/center.php .

Pi IS a real number, but because it is irrational, the decimal expansion of its digits never repeats. For a rational number (that is, a number that is the ratio of two integers), the digits eventually begin to repeat ad infinitum.

Hope this helps!

Quote:teliotContinued fraction convergents are an even faster method. But, I had not seen your method before ... curious.

Messing around a bit today:

Discard the first 51 terms.

Calculate the next 51 terms and then apply the Pascal Triangle numbers, and I get pi to 46 places.
