Extractions: Rutgers, Spring 2000 Throughout the history of mathematics, one of the most enduring challenges has been the calculation of the ratio between a circle's circumference and diameter, which has come to be known by the Greek letter pi . From ancient Babylonia to the Middle Ages in Europe to the present day of supercomputers, mathematicians have been striving to calculate the mysterious number. They have searched for exact fractions, formulas, and, more recently, patterns in the long string of numbers starting with 3.14159 2653..., which is generally shortened to 3.14. William L. Schaaf once said, "Probably no symbol in mathematics has evoked as much mystery, romanticism, misconception and human interest as the number pi" (Blatner, 1). We will probably never know who first discovered that the ratio between a circle's circumference and diameter is constant, nor will we ever know who first tried to calculate this ratio. The people who initiated the hunt for pi were the Babylonians and Egyptians, nearly 4000 years ago. It is not clear how they found their approximation for pi, but one source (Beckman) makes the claim that they simply made a big circle, and then measured the circumference and diameter with a piece of rope. They used this method to find that

THE ELECTRONIC AGE (1946 CE to present) VERY EARLY PI (up to c. 500 BCE) Back to Index of Time The first known mention of the ratio of circumference to diameter was written by Ahmes, an Egyptian scribe around 1650 BCE on the Rhind Papyrus. He implied that pi=256/81=3.16049..., less than 1% greater than our current value of 3.141592...! Even though he figured out a value for pi, it is doubtful he knew how to use it for circumference: the Rhind Papyrus talks about making a square whose area is equal to a circle's by using 8/9 of the diameter as one side. But the rest of the world didn't learn of his discovery: By 650 BCE, the Babylonians and the Jews were still using 3 for pi. In fact, the bible declares that the value of pi is 3: "Also he made a molten sea of ten cubits from brim to brim [diameter], round in compass....and a line of thirty cubits did compass it round about [circumference]."
