Pi SOLVED?




Good grief. What can psychics do? They can help you figure out one of the mathematical riddles of the universe: the final sequence of pi!

Da-da asked his psychic friend Lynn, whom he calls The Internet Oracle, whether pi was infinite.

Spoilers...

Wait for it...

Almost there...
Dum de dum...

Still here? Ok, here we go:
1. Pi is indeed infinite...
2. ...BUT it eventually has a repeating pattern beginning at 1728949. 
Where is that pattern exactly?? Lynn said, "It looks like what seems like a never ending string, and then I saw 1728949 beginning the loop...."

So. Yet another truth revealed. Mr. Yee, Mr. Kondo, do your stuff!

Or... whomever does it first, be sure to tip your psychic on the way home.

Did a few seconds of searching and got this info:

> The string 1728949 occurs at position 3147152. This string occurs 23 times in the first 200M digits of Pi.
counting from the first digit after the decimal point. The 3. is not counted.

> 14888888655527445272172894980156728785028815505

If I could get my hands on a full text of pi, I reckon I could find a pattern in about 10^16 years.

Well done! Get right on that. Another mystery solved!

Be a good test for those new quantum computers that actually already exist but no one knows about. Shhh.

As for pi, here in Texas we are purists in the matter. Our repetition starts with picking the pecans from the same tree for the pi.

That's a lot of pecans. Ok, now Da-da's hungry.
