Once we determine that it is 10^603, then we claim that 1*10^603 is the borderline and not Floor pi. When we work with 1 and then 603 zeros following, the division into 1 comes out perfectly even and not messy.

So everything is smooth fresh and clean. But suppose instead we pretend 13 is the borderline, then 1/13 is messy with 0.076 and we cannot then say 13.076 is the smallest infinity.

Hi. I dont think even if you cut the three zeroes in pi the number will fit the sequence. Try this site and test it: http://apfloat.appspot.com/

Test the number
3141592653589793238462643383279502884197169399375105820974944592307816406286208998628034825342117067982148086513282306647093844609550582231725359408128481117450284102701938521105559644622948954930381964428810975665933446128475648233786783165271201909145648566923460348610454326648213393607260249141273724587006606315588174881520920962829254091715364367892590360011330530548820466521384146951941511609433057270365759591953092186117381932611793105118548074462379962749567351885752724891227938183011949129833673362440656643086021394946395224737190702179860943702770539217176293176752384674818467669405132
