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




2. Pi is transcendental. What does it mean for a number to be transcendental?




3. What is the volume of a sphere (3-dimensional, not a hypersphere) [r = radius]?




4. If you pick any two integers at random, what is that probability that they will be relatively prime? ("relatively prime" means that the two numbers share no divisors except 1)




5. The following are all mnemonics for remembering the first few digits of pi (the number of letters in each word corresponds to a digit of pi). Which of these was written in 1995 by Michael Keith?
