**known as**“**Pi**Day” because of its resemblance to the first three digits in the decimal expansion of $**pi**$ (**pi**), which is defined as the ratio of a circle's circumference to its diameter: The true circle constant is the ratio of a circle's circumference to its radius, not to its diameter.#### Who invented the zero?

Zero was invented independently by the Babylonians, Mayans and Indians (although some researchers say the**Indian**number system was influenced by the Babylonians). The Babylonians got their number system from the Sumerians, the first people in the world to develop a counting system.#### What is the abbreviation of pi?
