30th anniversary of Pi Day celebrated with a tasty pie Google doodle

Google Doodle marks 30th year of Pi Day, the date that takes its digits from mathematics constant pi
Google got Dominique Ansel-the chap who invented the Cronut-to make the Pi pie. Pi is a Greek letter and mathematical constant used to calculate the area and circumference of a circle.
The value of Pi equals about 3.14159 in the usual decimal notation, the constant being one of the most important in mathematics and physics. From 2009 to 2012, she was an award-winning syndicated columnist for a number of daily newspapers from NY to Texas.
This year Google chose to mark the 30th occurrence of this event with a nod to "the number's delicious sounding name". He also gave a recipe of the apple pie. If you ask an engineer, he'll say "Pi?" The Pilish dialect was invented, in which the numbers of letters in successive words matched the digits of pi. He went on to create a caramel apple pie which according to him, it is one of the most classic forms of apple pies, therefore symbolising the mathematical constant pi which like an apple pie remains a constant favourite among the people. Mike Keith wrote a book "Not A Wake" entirely in Pilish.
It is a ratio between the perimeter of the circle and diameter of the same circle. Although it involves a fair amount of deftness and accuracy, it is possible.
Various ancient civilizationscalculated approximations of pi, including the Egyptians, Babylonians, and there's even a reference to the dimensions of a circle in the Bible, but the first calculation of pi as 3.14 is attributed to Greek mathematician Archimedes, who lived in the third century B.C. It was also independently determined by Chinese mathematician Zu Chongzhi (429-501), who computed pi to six decimal places.
Pi does not belong in the category of normal numbers, at least it is believed so by Mathematicians.
The International Pi Day is celebrated today, March 14th, the same day when, unfortunately, Stephan Hawking died. It features math problems for calculating Martian earthquakes, helium rain on Jupiter and the rotation rate of the asteroid 'Oumuamua.
Here's your first look at Fortnite mobile gameplay
Sony's argument, however, hardly holds any ground since the company is opening up cross-play between PS4 and PC and mobile games. The game's official Twitter account recently announced sign-ups for the iOS version of Fortnite is finally open.
