Home : Pi : The Pi Trivia Game

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. In what year were the first 100 digits of pi first calculated?

2. Are pi's digits periodic?

3. 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)

4. What professor was dismissed from his position in 1934 for teaching in an "un-German" style after saying (correctly) that pi/2 is the value of x between 1 and 2 for which cos x vanishes?

5. How does one convert pi in base 10 to base 2?
