    What do you mean by "exist"? It's a number. Other than certain technicalities, it isn't very different from any other number, 2 or 3 or something like that.

    I assume you want to know what pi represents. It's basically the ratio of the circumference of a circle to it's diameter. It is a constant for a circle of any radius. It'll always be approximately 3.14.

    If you want to know how this number is obtained (I assume that's what you meant by "proof"), find out for yourself. A simple technique would be - draw a circle (of a large radius preferably), take a thread, measure it's circumference and divide that value by the diameter. You'll see that you get 3.14 more or less.

    Hope this helps (:

    Pi is a real number! I have already proven that on this thread.
    Yeah, you did.

    Your definition of an 'imaginary number' might be different, but the real difference is no-one gives a toss about your definition of an imaginary number :rofl:
    Hahahaha... I can't force anyone to believe me!

    Sometimes,mathematicians are just like females having got a period. It's kinda hard to understand them, really.

    Absolutely right...something material. Pi and other numbers can be real in your mind. Numbers are just some of imaginary things used to help human beings to do everyday activities. Human beings create numbers by using their imaginations and high intelligence.

    If that is how you define "exists" (a very acceptable definition) then no number of any form exists.

    (c) I asked that question because I wanted an answer. You seem to be oscillating between being nice and thankful to me for providing answers to your questions and being an irritating **** who takes delight in repeatedly posting stupid *******s.

    (d) I am a student. You aren't making any sense.


    Just read the god-forsaken answers you've been given for Christ's sake. If you don't understand them then then ask for clarification or go learn something rather than just ignoring them and asking even more idiotic things.
    Okay, I believe you are a student. But those asterisks are the clear evidence that shows something bad about yourself. You should learn how to control yourself! And I just ignore stupid answers that could make me an idiot. Thanks for your reply, student.

    You are prejudiced and likely ignorant if you think swearing indicates a lack of self-control and is "clear evidence" of "something bad".

    I contend that the patronising and childish behaviour that you have exhibited in this thread is far more convincing evidence of "something bad".
