Chunky Buck is angry tonight. Jitters about being Dave's bride?

It's ok fatass, just say a prayer like Michael Behe does each day at the DI. You know that Christian think tank?

Any questions?
Once again, do you think that pi is an integer? In other words, did you understand the definition you just gave?

There is no such thing as an infinite sum.
There is no infinite anything.
It is possible, however, to IMAGINE an infinite sum, or an infinite anything.
That's why it's irrational.
There are plenty of infinite sums that yield rational numbers.

4 *(1 - 1/3 + 1/5 - 1/7 + 1/9 ...) is not pi.
It is two whole numbers, four fractions, an asterisk, open and close parentheses, three dots, two plus symbols, and two minus symbols.
There is nothing infinite there. It is very finite, proven by my being able to place it on this page in increments larger than zero.
(Something infinite would take a lot longer to write.)
This is Buck School. Welcome back.
in that case,
pi=4*sum_{n=1}^{\infty}\frac{( -1)^{n+1)}{2n-1}

There, pi is given as a finite expression. Nothing infinite there.

So if you used your arm to measures with how many decimal places do you think you would use?
For that level of accuracy, I would use 22/7 and not a decimal expansion.

Yes, it is a real number.

Or, if your prefer,

pi=4*lim_N sum_{n=1}^{N}\frac{(-1)^{n+1}} {2n-1}

I already know more about infinity than any of the experts on this nuttwagon.
I did my research. You try some, Tinkling.
"The infinite is nowhere to be found in reality. It neither exists in nature nor provides a legitimate basis for rational thought. The role that remains for the infinite is solely that of an idea." -David Hilbert
"The notion of a completed infinity doesn't belong in mathematics; infinity is merely a figure of speech which helps us talk about limits" -German mathematician Carl Friedrich Gauss
"Actual infinity does not exist. What we call infinite is only the endless possibility of creating new objects no matter how many exist already" -French mathematician Henri Poincare
Math has progressed a bit since those quotes. Even Hilbert and Poincare freely used completed infinities later in their work.

List Pi
You don't seem to understand that this request itself shows a complete lack of understanding. You don't 'list' a number. I number is a single entity. you can expand that number in decimal notation, or in binary notation, or as a continued fraction, or as an infinite sum. But it makes no sense to 'list' a number.

The only sensible way to 'list pi' is to write a list with pi as one of its members:[ pi ](to use python lists).

Now, if a vat has a diameter of 10 cubits, what is the circumference to the nearest cubit?

Holy delusional mother of mythical god, I sure hope this guy is not a financial person.

OH hell we can round it up or down and it will be OK. One little decimal point or number will not matter. The numbers and or correlation of numbers are nothing it is only the single number that matters.
