Why does pi go on indefinitely, because a circle has an infinite number of corners? How do you show that (to any extent)? How come we only know about 6.4 billion of the digitWhy does pi go on indefinitely, because a circle has an infis that it goes up to?

see, do you know what is Pi?

Pi is simply a ratio of 2 numbers.

that 2 numbers are diameter and circumference of the circle.

pi=C/D

but this ratio is a constant for any circle and that value is pi.

But as ratio of 2 numbers can also be transcendental, pi is a trancendental real number.

yes trancendental numbers can have infinite digits after decimal.

so approximation of pi is good idea for practical purpose.

as far as geometric meaning of pi goes than its a property of circle and nothing else.

and digits of pi has been calculated to 10^12 digits.
