Pi Geocoin

 

 

PI Geocoin

Pi is an irrational number. It has eluded mathematicians for centuries due to the high rate of inaccurate digits produced from the different formulae. After the invention of calculators and modern day computers, however, the digits of Pi have become much more precise. There are several different equations which are used to find Pi, such as the more modern BBP formula displayed on this coin. The main use of Pi is to find the exact circumference of a circle.
