Ok, actually, I know exactly a million digits...
Nope, they've got to be in your head for it to count.

You're supposed to do that, aren't you?

2. ## Re: How many digits of pi do you know?

Honestly? I only know 3.14.

3.14159

That's 5

4. ## Re: How many digits of pi do you know?

Just 3.14

That's all we have ever had to know if we don't have a calculator on us.

5. ## Re: How many digits of pi do you know?

3.14 thats all that was required when we weren't allowed to use the pi button

6. ## Re: How many digits of pi do you know?

3.14 is all i ever remember. Usually, i go like, Pi: 3.14- then i just insert random numbers. Like this...

Pi: 3.14123456432456545675655798694356843756843568858756848956947565907869009006856875646588674765694785 6943o764597690948676954346947y46079809345-23590-00950-91234567891011121314151617181920

3.14159265

8 then. Don't know why, we only had to know 3.14.

8. ## Re: How many digits of pi do you know?

^That's 9....

Round up? Considering the 7 version leaves 8 digits, I bet it was a calculator that rounded; otherwise, it seems odd to me to go that far (excluding use of a pi button, do teachers really have you type in the numbers beyond 3.14?) only to round it. What are you calculating that needs exactly 8 digits of pi?

No, it's 8. We're only counting digits after the decimal point.

10. ## Re: How many digits of pi do you know?

3,14. Lame and ungeeky, I know...

11. ## Re: How many digits of pi do you know?

3.14

That would be all. I don't recall there ever being a general use for it in everyday life, besides bugging kids studying math. Considering I suck at math, my pile of care dedicated to pi has always been very small.

12. ## Re: How many digits of pi do you know?

3.1415, I think that's right...

Oh. Guess I should have read the first post more thoroughly.[/hypocrisy]

14. ## Re: How many digits of pi do you know?

3.141592654 is the furthest I've cared to go.

15. ## Re: How many digits of pi do you know?

3.141
