# pi ---> my mission

hi guys,

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!

OK, good luck

omg, youâ€™re crazy!

in my math classroom, we got a poster with 1million pi numberâ€¦hehe I don,t think Iâ€™ll try lol

You should practice reciting what youâ€™ve memorized for the next few days, I find that if I donâ€™t do that then I forget it again.

Good luck.

Ha, only 10,000! If youâ€™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.

Youâ€™re going to need more than just luck to memorize it completelyâ€¦ like a finite solution for an irrational number.

Hence the wink.

Try breaking it into sections, and starting on those sections. its hard to forget the beginning of a section.

Good luck!

I want to know what that pi site was - it was on a thread a while back but I canâ€™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

Good luck

hehe i havenâ€™t got much further when i heard that there was some formula with which it is possible to calculate any digit of pi. i canâ€™t find the formula anywhere thoughâ€¦ 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 doesnâ€™t end, and the sequence of number isnâ€™t repeated over and over).

good luck breaking your brains! LOL iâ€™m too lazy to do those kind of things or would get bored and quit. LOL

Raven: wow thanks that is exactly what i was looking for
