What is Pi?
Pi, or π, is a mathematical constant and represents the ratio between the distance around a circle (this is known as the circumference) and the diameter of the circle, resulting in the same number every time. The number, though, is odd. It starts at 3.14159265... and continues forever. Numbers like this are known as irrational numbers.
When you divide the circumference of any circle by its diameter, the answer (whether for a pizza or football) is always approximately 3.14, which is represented by the Greek letter π.
