Some of the details that you may want to know: pi indicates the ratio of the circumference to diameter of a circle; pi is irrational (cannot be expressed as the quotient of two integers) and transcendental (or as the solution of a polynomial equation). Irrational also means that the digits do not repeat indefinitely. With formulas, trigonometric and powerful computers, pi has now been calculated to more than a billion digits. Knowing these figures, in and of itself, has no practical application.
