PI DAY 2018

Today is a very special celebration.
Of course, it's Pi Day, with March the third month of the year, and today being the fourteenth.

But today is also the THIRTIETH ANNIVERSARY of celebrating this irrational number that cannot be fully expressed as a fraction, although most scientists and mathematicians prefer to write it as 22 over 7.

It is an unique number whose exact decimal representation cannot be completely calculated because it never ends nor repeats to a scientific conclusion. The number sequence representing PI, as seen in the second image, is derived from trying to divide 22 by 7 but unfinished.

So however you care to slice it or celebrate, HAPPY PI DAY!
