Google's pie marks 30th Pi Day

The Google doodle is celebrating Pi day in honour of the never ending sequence of numbers that forms a cornerstone of mathematics.

Google is celebrating the 30th anniversary of the Pi Day with a Google doodle depicting an actual apple "Pie". It is the ratio between a circle's circumference to it's diameter. Mathematicians have calculated more than one trillion decimal places beyond the standard 3.14, but the irrational number is such that it continues to infinity. From 2009 to 2012, she was an award-winning syndicated columnist for a number of daily newspapers from NY to Texas. For instance, there are astounding formulae in which smaller and smaller numbers add up to pi and one of the earliest such infinite series to be discovered says that pi equals four times the sum 1 - 1⁄3 + 1⁄5 - 1⁄7 + 1⁄9 - 1⁄11 + ⋯. It is observed on this day as 3,1, and 4 are the first three significant digits of the value of Pi.

Did you know that there is Pi language?

Pi Day is an official celebration of the mathematical constant π, also represented by the number 3.14. Although it involves a fair amount of deftness and accuracy, it is possible.

However, it all boiled down to how the bowlers executed their plans after India won the toss and asked Sri Lanka to bat. Mendis though got little support from the other batsmen as the hosts kept losing wickets at regular intervals.

The value of pi is 22/7 and today even school children use the value to calculate the circumference and area of a circle by substituting the value of pi in the formulas.

The International Pi Day is celebrated today, March 14th, the same day when, unfortunately, Stephan Hawking died.

It is believed that physicist Larry Shaw was the first to celebrate the day at the Exploratorium in San Francisco with his peers and staff nearly 30 years ago. It features math problems for calculating Martian earthquakes, helium rain on Jupiter and the rotation rate of the asteroid 'Oumuamua.
