Pi is both the sixteenth letter of the Greek alphabet and the symbol which represents the
world's oldest mathematical mystery: the ratio of a circle's circumference to its diameter.
The earliest known written record of the ratio comes from 1650 BCE Egypt, where a scribe
calculated the value to be 3.16 (a mere 1% off the true value). Although now, we have
methods to calculate the digits of pi (3.1415...) its exact value remains a mystery.
