Pi Day is another day for math enthusiasts to celebrate the discoveries and innovations of segment. As a tribute to the calculation of 3.4, which is often marked with the 'π' symbol, this occasion harks back to chronicles of time in order to amass people in the buzz of academic activities, vibrant exhibitions, and striking pie-eating competitions.

According to NASA, ''The ratio of a circle’s circumference (the distance around it) to its diameter (the distance across it) is always equal to pi. Most commonly, pi is used to answer questions about anything circular or spherical, so it comes in handy.'

Precisely, Pi is known as a bizarre decimal number that never repeats any number. Pi was first traced around 4000 years ago, and it played a significant role in the Babylonian and ancient Egyptian measurements.
