March 14th is Pi Day, so enjoy some pie!

Google Doodle marks 30th year of Pi Day the date that takes its digits from mathematics constant

Google Doodle celebrates the 30th anniversary of pi. Google got Dominique Ansel-the chap who invented the Cronut-to make the Pi pie.

The earliest proven use of a good approximation of the length of a circumference relative to the radius is 3+1/7 and it has been used at the construction of pyramids in Ancient Egypt.

Pi, which represents the ratio of a circle's circumference to its diameter, is an important part of the foundation of mathematics.

Historically, the first Pi Day was held at a San Francisco Science Museum in 1988 when the physicist looked at the calendar and made a decision to pay homage to the mathematical entity.

They followed it up with back-to-back wins over Malaga and Athletic Bilbao . Think a 2-1 defeat to Huddersfield Town , a draw away at Leicester City.

Memorizing Pi has been something that has fascinated people and there have been straight records for the same with the record for the most digits of pi being memorized by Rajveer Meena of Vellore, India, who recited 70,000 decimal places of pi on March 21, 2015, according to The Guinness Book Of World Records. Nowadays, Pi Day is often associated with food - perhaps pizza, or a meat pie, but in this case, a classic American apple pie with a French twist. Because its most elementary definition relates to the circle, pi is found in many formulae in trigonometry and geometry, especially those concerning circles, ellipses, and spheres.

Pi is a mathematical constant, meaning it isn't changed by the size of the numbers it's used to equate, and it is irrational, meaning it has an infinite number of digits that never repeat.

Pi is one of the most commonly known mathematical constants. It's an annual celebration of the mathematical constant, π.

Pi is also a source of inspiration for competitions, where participants have to recite as many decimals of the number as possible.
