Today is Pi Day.

To those who aren’t math nuts, Pi is an irrational number produced by division of any circumference by its diameter.  It is irrational because its quotient goes on and on, forever.  All circumferences and diameters produce the same ratio.

Why do we care?  Many people don’t.  Many people live their entire lives not knowing and not caring.  Those of us who do care celebrate the day.  Reminder–3.14 is only an approximation for π.

    Question: Write the expression for the volume of a thick crust pizza with height (a) and radius (z).

    Answer: The formula for volume is π*(radius)^2*(height). This further reduces to – Pi z z a.

    The π is the Pi symbol.
