For math lovers, it's a chance to celebrate Pi, the number representing the ratio of a circle's circumference to its diameter.
Although Pi is typically rounded up to 3.14, it can go on forever.
According to Guinness World Records, the most accurate value for Pi is more than 62 trillion digits. It was achieved by the University of Applied Sciences (Switzerland) in Chur, Switzerland, on August 19, 2021.
The most decimal places of Pi memorized is 70,000 and was achieved by Rajveer Meena at the VIT University in India in March 2015.
