Pi is an interesting and mysterious number in mathematics. Mathematicians have been interested in this number for the last 4000 years, and work on it is still going on. Its definition is very simple: it is defined as the ratio of the circumference of a circle to its diameter. It does not matter how big or small the circle is, the ratio stays the same.
