### Interesting Information.....

I wish to share 'Interesting Information' I have read, inferred, deduced, computed, and compiled in my life in Question - Answer pattern...in these subjects : my favorite ones: Mathematics, Physics, Chemistry, Astronomy, and Geography....

II 1. The smallest number apart from zero and one is a perfect square square, cube, fourth, fifth, and sixth power contains a certain number of digits. How many?

II 2. Why is the number 1.444667861.... important to Mathematicians?
(Index» Euler Avenue» Transcendental Numbers #1)

II 3. The number 'pi' is a mathematical constant, the ratio of a circle's circumference to its diameter, commonly approximated as 3.14159. After how many places does 'zero' appears in the value of pi?
