COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) - A pizzeria celebrates math by giving customers a big discount on "Pi day."
Not the dessert, but the mathematical concept. Pi is the ratio of a circle's circumference to its diameter. That's equal to about 3.14.
"Today is Pi Day is our biggest promotion of the year so we're selling pizzas for a discount of $3.14 to commemorate Pi. Obviously it's our customer appreciation day and teachers really love it, parents love it, and we see a lot of kids come in. It's just a really fun event for us to put on and we enjoy it," Christa Feighner said co-owner of Your Pie.
The mathematical holiday is a way to spread the word about the benefits of math.
