I finally found some information about pi. No one really knows who specifically figured out pi, but what we do know is that pi existed for over thousands of years and still today it is being used. In about 2000 BC, the babylonians used 3 1/4 as an approximation for pi and the egyptians used 256/81. Pi was used specifically for the measurements of a circle the old mathematicians used to measure really large circles to come up with the decimal numbers.
