The First One Million Digits Of Pi

pigraphic

Here’s a site with a strange name (arguably, in this context, not so) that shows the first one million digits of π. The site is:

The exact web address that contains the one million digits of π is:

http://3.141592653589793238462643383279502884197169399375105820974944592.com/index314159.html

If a million digits are still not enough for you, just do a search on the and you will find sites with the first ten million, 100 million or even one billion digits of π.

  1. If only I could think of any possible use for the first million digits of Pi. As previous commenter said, 22/7 is adequate for most purposes. Mind you, I was the clever clogs who, having completed school exams in less than the available time, spent the rest of the time working out e (base of natural logs) to ever more decimal places. Never got to a million though.

    1. You could stun friends and achieve more precise solutions. Not to mention bragging rights.

      Ha, I like that term, “clever clogs.” If I had time after mathematics tests, I would probably derive some value or equation, too.

    1. Good point. In my own mathematics work (high school senior presently), problem sets have only required the first 3 digits. Still, kudos to the math enthusiast who wrote the first million digits for the edification of the world wide web.
