From: Loyd To: Teacher2Teacher Public Discussion Date: 2003050916:13:15 Subject: Re: remembering PI to 10 places In the past, I programed in FORTRAN, BASIC, PASCAL and C. I often used the following for PI: Write down the first three doubly odd digits as: 11 33 55. Divide 355 by 113 (355/113) and you get 3.14159292 which is pretty close to pi. Good enough for most work. Corrected a digit in second post.
