    Reciting the First 314 Digits of Pi From Memory

     

    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     For math enthusiasts around the world, March 14 (3-14) is Pi Day, honoring the number pi, which is the ratio of circumference to diameter of a circle. JoyfulGypsy said she got the idea to memorize the digits of pi from a Pi Day assignment on iReport two years ago. 'In the weekend leading up to Pi Day that year, I memorized the first 100 digits and submitted a video. Then, for last year's Pi Day assignment, I memorized 100 more digits in the month leading up to Pi Day (200 total) ... Then, last month I started memorizing 114 digits more for Pi Day this year. It's just a fun challenge I enjoy.'

    This year, I thought it would be fun to memorize the first 314 digits of pi for Pi Day.

     

    The first 314 digits of pi are:
