There are several infinite series. To find PI to x digits, evaluate each term to x+2 digits until the value is 0. Then round to x digits.

A polynomial of degree zero is a constant term

The grouping method of factoring can still be used when only some of the terms share a common factor A True B False

The sum or difference of p and q is the of the x-term in the trinomial

A number a power of a variable or a product of the two is a monomial while a polynomial is the of monomials

How can you estimate the value of an irrational number?

There are different methods for estimating irrational numbers. For numbers like pi or e, there are infinite series which can be used to calculate their value to the required degree of accuracy. There are numerical methods - such as the Newton-Raphson iteration - for estimating roots of numbers.

How can you calculate the exact value of pi?

22 divided by 7 * * * * * That is an APPROXIMATE value of pi. The exact value cannot be calculated since pi is a transcendental number - a special kind of irrational number. It has an infinite decimal representation with no recurring pattern. That would be true in any base - binary, octal, or another base (other than pi itself, or a power of pi).

Does pi has value?

Yes; around 3.141592. The number is in actuality infinite and irrational.

What is the proper way of accessing the constant Pi of the Math class?

There are various ways: most scientific calculators will give the value of pi to 8-10 decimal places. 3.14159 is sufficient for most normal calculations. Even 3.142 will suffice.There are very many infinite series which converge to pi or a simple function of pi. However, some converge very slowly and others are much more rapid. Search for infinite series for pi on the web for suggestions.
