in my maths class there is this poster up with the first 80 digits of pi. i thought that it would be hard to memorise but i gave it a go (i was bored) and i did it in about half an hour with no real problems. so, now i have decided to memorise the first 10 000 digits . It will take me a while but i will try not to give up. the world record is 42 thousand something. anyways, wish me luck!
omg, you’re crazy!
in my math classroom, we got a poster with 1million pi number…hehe I don,t think I’ll try lol
You should practice reciting what you’ve memorized for the next few days, I find that if I don’t do that then I forget it again.
Ha, only 10,000! If you’re going to try, why not go the whole way and beat the record. Or you could just try to memorize Pi completely.
Best of luck to you.
You’re going to need more than just luck to memorize it completely… like a finite solution for an irrational number.
Try breaking it into sections, and starting on those sections. its hard to forget the beginning of a section.
I want to know what that pi site was - it was on a thread a while back but I can’t find it. It may help you as well.
If you want to be a real geek then calculate the first 100,000 digits (you can use your computer). You will end memorizing the digits, I know because I did it.
Good luck anyway!
How is it going ? You should be around digit 5000 now
hehe i haven’t got much further when i heard that there was some formula with which it is possible to calculate any digit of pi. i can’t find the formula anywhere though… anyone have a site where it may be?
does pi have an end? or is it a never ending number?
Blengine: well, technicaly, saying that it never ends would also apply to periodical number. To be more accurate, we have to say that Pi is an irrationnal number (it doesn’t end, and the sequence of number isn’t repeated over and over).
Raven: wow thanks that is exactly what i was looking for
