Finally this is your chance to pay tribute to the magnificent transcendental number that we have all grown to love! Here are 25 questions (given to you 5 at a time), picked randomly from my pi question database. Get ready for the thrill of your lifetime, the ultimate challenge, The Pi Trivia Game!

1. For many years, it has been conjectured but unproven that pi is normal in base 10. What does normal mean?




2. Which of the following is NOT equal to pi?




3. Which of the following is an arctangent formula for pi?




4. For a given value of N: if you add up the first N decimals of pi (excluding the initial 3), the sum is 666 (not to imply that pi is at all satanic). What is the value of N?




5. If one were to find the circumference of a circle the size of the known universe, requiring that the circumference be accurate to within the radius of one proton, how many decimal places of pi would need to be used?
