Thank you, Archimedes!

March 14 is 3-14, Pi Day. If you aren’t familiar with this number, it represents the ratio of the circumference of a circle to its diameter. It is used to make many different calculations in geometry. It is infinite.

You’re probably thinking; “This is a writing site! Why in the lexical hell would I want to know about pi?”

The answer to your quandary lies before you; use 3.14, the word “pi”, the concept of pi, maybe even stretch it out and think about what Archimedes (founder of pi) was doing when he founded it, in a ficly. I don’t care how, just do it seamlessly and artfully.

22/7 is also used as pi. It doesn’t divide out to be 3.14etc, but it’s close enough and you can use it if you want.

-The most seamless, pain free entry wins, but the use of Pi must be more than subtle.

See “Discussion” to see how many I memorized a few years ago. I promise I didn’t cheat.

Happy calcu-writing!!
