[QUOTE]I don't think so. List the number Pi."

One does not 'list' a number. Pi is pi. It is equal to the infinite sum I gave above. There are several other characterizations of it. A decimal expansion is only one way of many. And it isn't even msuch a good way.

[QUOTE]If my answer is incorrect you supply the exact number for Pi."

I did. Pi is exactly equal to the infinite sum
pi=4*(1 - 1/3 + 1/5 - 1/7 + 1/ 9 ---)

[QUOTE]You can? Didn't think you could. In fact no matter what you give as Pi your number of digits you leave off will be the same as the number of digits I left off using just the number 3.
Prove me wrong. "

Decimal expansions are not the only way to define a number.
List it all.

Or admit that 3 is also a form of Pi

No, it is NOT a 'form' of pi any more than 2 is a 'form' of 2.1. It is a particularly poor approximation. What I gave is an exact formula. It happens to be an infinite sum with a specific pattern. But that infinite sum is *exactly* equal to pi.

You don't list a number. You can give a decimal expansion. You can give a continued fraction expansion. You can give a series expansion. None of those are lists.

Perhaps you should learn some basic math.

Oh, by the way, what is the circumference of a vat that is 10 cubits across? You can give your answer to the nearest cubit if you want.

Yes. Do the infinite sum and you get pi exactly.

Keep waiting, cuntard.

4 *(1 - 1/3 + 1/5 - 1/7 + 1/9 ...) is pi. People were doing this in the 1600s. If you're thicker than people in the 1600s, keep complaining.

I can show you how to do the first thousand iterations in something as shabby as Excel if you really care.

If you don't like pi not being exactly 3, go tell your god off for being so awkward.

List the number Pi not an equation.

You do know the number that is Pi?

Standing back and watching you and SZ dancing together. Reminds me of Bozo the clown dancing with Charlie Chapman.

Still waiting for the exact number of Pi.

No. It is not an integer. In fact, it is an irrational number.

No, I included that when I said it is the *infinite* sum.

Real numbers are *defined* as limits of rational numbers. I gave one particular limit (an infinite sum) that gives pi.
Yes, pi is an irrational number given by the infinite sum
4*(1 - 1/3 + 1/5 - 1/7 + 1/9 - 1/11 +...)
That infinite sum is exactly pi.

Do you mistakenly think that every number is either even or odd? Well, you are wrong. Every *integer* is either even of odd, but non-integers are neither. For example, 1/3 is not even nor is it odd. Neither is 1/10.
Pi is an irrational number, so it cannot even be written as a quotient of two integers (like 1/3 can). Even more so, it is not the root of any polynomial with integer coefficients (we say it is transcendental).
Perhaps you should learn some basic math.

No kidding.

News flash I know Pi !

It is you and your clan that claim you can't round it off.

I would love to see the number you use for Pi with out any rounding off.

As well as I did when I said I'm round off to a whole number.

You're not listing all of your figures.
This would be acceptable if you hadn't made the claim more less that no one else is allowed to round off Pi.
