Pi backwards? That IS a challenge (I can only go to 3.14 when going forwards.)
They’d have to specify how many decimal places to start from. I’d say 5,000 would be a good place.
π being irrational, its decimal representation never ends, so you can’t actually recite it “backwards”.
pi backwards:(1 + i * 2) / i ^( -1) of infinity to 0 = i from summation the * 4
MIT cheer: I’m a Beaver, you’re a Beaver, we are Beavers all. And when we get together, we do the Beaver call. E to the U du dx, E to the X dx. Cosine, secant, tangent, sine, 3.14159. Integral radical mu dv Slipstick, sliderule, MIT. Go Tech!
E-I-P. Dang. I lose.
I’m not 100% sure you are joking, so just in case:You can actually prove mathematically that π is irrational. (Furthermore, it is transcendental.) Irrational numbers cannot be represented by a finite number of decimal digits unless you are rounding.
To even speak of the “last digit” of Pi is nonsensical, so the contest makes no sense.
I think they are confusing “Pi” with “pee” here. After all, he who “goes first” loses…
Pi has over a billion numbers after the decimal without a pattern
At least they’re staying out of trouble…for now.
I like the MIT cheer.
I still have one that I bought with paper route profits in 1970, and can still use it (well, most of the scales, anyway). Also have an old HP-65 that unfortunately has a few LED segments out.
Pi is exactly 3!!!!
Sorry I had to do that but now that I have your attention i’d like to talk to you about Life Insurance…
Since he said a number he’s out
