# Fun with Pi

September 22, 2011

Geeky fun: search to see if your name appears in π when the digits are converted to base 27 and mapped to the alphabet.

From the site:

## MIKEPK In pi!!!

I searched 31415929 digits of pi, and found MIKEPK once. The first occurrence was at position 6898826. What this means is that

pi = 3 + . . . + M

27^{6898826}+ I

27^{6898827}+ K

27^{6898828}+ E

27^{6898829}+ P

27^{6898830}+ K

27^{6898831}+ ...

Where A=1, B=2, C=3, and so on.This is much earlier than usual! About 1.7% of 6 letter names occur earlier than that.
