Hello fellow Nerdfighters!
I have several Math questions and I can't seem to find anyone who can answer them. To be clear, I don't need help with homework. These are questions like, does the closed-form solution to pi exist? Big questions for things that were not taught in school. I was hoping to ask them here, or get in touch with a mathematician. Your help is always appreciated. Thank you for your time.
Respectfully,

Also, there are lots of physics forums around, and if you tried a couple of those I bet you could find someone willing to help.
Good luck!
π = c / 2 x r
Highly tractable.
Rollos definition is perfectly valid, though you are going to run out of time/memory if you insist on finding the "perfect value".
π = c / 2 x r
By defnition a "closed-form" expression is one that can be expressed in a finite number of operations.
What I gave you has 2 operations - multiplication and division. 2 is a finite number.
QED: Pi although irrational has a closed-form expression to describe it.
I am a bit baffled by this idea that "pi=c/2r" thing, though, considering that both of the quantities are undefined variables that require empirical measurement to be useful, and as such will never be as precise as an actual mathematical definition of the quantity at hand.
