Who is the mother of math?

Hypatia (c. 355–415) was the first woman known to have taught mathematics.

Why is Pi 22 divided 7?

Pi is an irrational number—you can’t write it down as a non-infinite decimal. In the past, many math books listed Pi as 22/7. Again, this is just an approximation but it is better than the value of 3 (actually 22/7 is closer to Pi than just writing 3.14).

Does 22 7 go forever?

That’s because pi is what mathematicians call an “infinite decimal” — after the decimal point, the digits go on forever and ever. Though it is an irrational number, some use rational expressions to estimate pi, like 22/7 of 333/106. (These rational expressions are only accurate to a couple of decimal places.)

Will Pi ever end?

: Pi, or the Greek letter π, is a mathematical constant equal to the ratio of a circle’s circumference to its diameter — C/d. It lurks in every circle, and equals approximately 3.14. (Hence Pi Day, which takes place on March 14, aka 3/14.)
