PI is an important mathematical constant.
   
   PI is the ratio of any circle's circumference to
   its diameter.  PI = circumference / diameter.
   
   This constant turns up all through mathematics,
   especially in periodic functions.

   No matter how many digits PI is calculated
   to, those digits never repeat!
   
   The fraction 355/113 is an extremely accurate value
   for PI, being 3.141592920353982300884955752212389...
   The difference between 355/113 and PI is less
   than 0.000003 or 3 millionths.
   
   355/113 eventually repeats.  All fractions
   eventually repeat, but PI doesn't.  So PI can
   never be expressed EXACTLY as a fraction.
   This remarkable fact puts PI into a class of
   numbers called "irrational".

   PI to 2,501 digits of accuracy:
