Amazing Pi

Middle School Madness - October 25, 2021

Amazing Pi Image

Pi is the ratio of a circle’s circumference to its diameter.  Since the value of Pi is a never ending, non-repeating irrational number, the value 3.14 is widely used as an approximation.  If we consider 3 as the first digit of Pi and 1 as the second and 4 as the third, find the sum of the first 15 digits of this amazing number.
