Happy Pi Day … in 5 digits!
O.K., so we all know it’s Pi Day, and we all know it’s a special Pi Day because it’s not just 3.14, it’s 3.1415 since this is the year 2015. But if you really want to get technical about it, how about adding a 5th digit, the digit 9, for 3.14159 …
How to celebrate this very special moment?
First just ask yourself how would you find .9 or 9/10 of a 24-hour day?
Well, just make a proportion: 9/10 = x/24
That gives you that x = 21.6
And that means that at 21.6 hours into this day we would be celebrating the moment of Pi Day with 5 digits. And what is that time? 21.6 hours from 12 midnight would be 9:36 pm. Where I live, that’s just about half an hour from now. So I just thought that everyone might like to know about this special moment.
