Most Accurate Value Of Pi Recorded
- Year Set: 2020
- Who Set It: Timothy Mullican
- Nationality: United States of America
It used to be that some of the most prominent mathematicians and scientists of their time back in the 15th to 18th century would try to calculate the measure of Pi. For many years, we had to do the math on this in the hardest way. But that changed and records for Pi were just represented by memory. Eventually, calculations were made using it. That was what Timothy Mullican managed to do in 2020. He surpassed Emma Haruka Iwao’s 2019 world record for the most accurate value of Pi, which used 31.4 trillion digits. Timothy managed to calculate 50 trillion digits! 2020 was a weird year for all of us.
