Let me see what you are saying Pi is irrational >because it is ***represented*** by an increasing sequense ***decimals***, well so is 1/3. Nothing new for me here. Yes i do know Pi is nonerepeating and increasing using ordinary decimals. And i do realise that if i can express Pi as a fraction or a series fractions, or using another base and make it have a fixed number of digits it becomes rational.
You know i really like to get rid of those zeros.
Maybe you missed something i said.
