October 25, 2014 – What do you get if you divide the circumference of a jack-o’-lantern by its diameter? Pumpkin pi.
This is only funny if you know enough mathematics to understand that there is a fundamental relationship that is true for all circles: the ratio of the circumference (i.e. the perimeter, or distance around the outside) to the diameter (the distance across the centre) is a constant (i.e. it is the same value for all circles, regardless of size).
I liked this post a lot. Enjoyed reading it. Thanks for posting.
