In simple English, the distance around any circle is exactly times the distance across it.Since the radius of a circle is half its diameter, the circumference is radii (radiuses) in length, hence 360° = radians, as demonstrated by .

Another Fascinating Factoid: returns the first

twenty fourdigits of , split between two stack levels.Note that is recognized by some functions and is handled exactly.

Example (in Exact mode with flags -2 and -3 clear):
