Probably the ancient Egyptians who discovered that the diagonal of a unit square was not a rational number. And then discovered other such numbers.

Type your answer here...square root of two or pie ?

A perfect square is the square of an integer, i.e., an integer multiplied by itself. For example, 25 is a perfect square, because 5 x 5 = 25. But, in literal mathematical terms, a perfect number is a positive integer that is the sum of its proper positive divisors, excluding the number itself. A square number is also called a "perfect square", so an example of a square number is above. So, a perfect square number would have to be a number that is both perfect and square, and there are yet to be any of these numbers "discovered".
