Pi, by definition, is the ratio of a circle’s circumference to its diameter (Pi = C/d). This constant is used to solve the area of a circle, with the formula “Pi r squared” or “the product of Pi and the square of the length of the radius.” The rounded-off version of Pi is accepted for general computations. Here’s Pi up to 20 decimal digits: 3.14159265358979323846.
