Sure they will. Since it is infinite and non repeating, It is presumed that pi has every sequence of numbers imaginable, meaning that if you came up with any random 50 numbers, somewhere in the string of pi they would exist making tastymeatpie's comment extra clever. The only part that would incorrect is that since there is no end to pi, there is no middle.

I think this is a common misconception. Sort of like saying a million monkeys mashing the keys of a million typewriters for a million, or even an infinite, number of years would eventually produce the complete works of Shakespeare. No. No, they would not. Just because something is infinite and non-repeating it does not necessarily follow that it must contain every possible pattern.

Sure it does. You realize just how long infinite is right? Furthermore, the link you provided proved my point - "However, if the decimal expansion of π contains every possible finite string of digits, which seems quite likely, then the rest of the statement is indeed correct. Of course, in that case it also contains numerical equivalents of every book that will never be written, among other things."

I must have missed that comment amid all the many others that said the exact opposite. And yes, I understand what infinity means. 50 numbers isn't that long, though, so.. you're probably right about it containing any random string of 50 numbers. probably. But the binary equivalent of Pride and Prejudice? Highly highly highly unlikely. Even stretched out to infinity.

If you took ten balloons filled with paint and threw them in the air and watched how they landed, they would make different patterns of color every time. If you did this an infinite number of times, would you eventually get the Mona Lisa? No. Never. Same with the monkey thing. Monkeys typing on a keyboard might produce a lot of random letters. But you will get a lot of variants of "agvaelnhvke" and "a l er kjehv " and "artraegav"... but never once "To be or not to be, that is the question"... it just wouldn't happen. Not even with an infinite number of tries. The probability is effectively zero.

According to that stackexchange link you posted, it is expected that every possible string of numbers can be found in pi. It just hasn't been proven. But you're right the chance of finding a random 50 digit string is effectively zero unless we develop new methods of calculating digits of pi.
+50
Level 73
Apr 9, 2015
That's the beauty of infinity. There is no such thing as "effectively zero" probability. Stretching a limit out to infinity, probability becomes either 100% or 0%. Using your balloon example, you couldn't release an infinite number of balloons with an infinite number of colors and end up making a cake because the media are different, therefore probability = 0% even over an infinite time period. However, when typing, including letters and common punctuation, you have a one in say 35 chance or 2.86% chance to hit a certain letter. To accidentally type the word "Hamlet" that probability drops to .0000000544%. So yes, typing an entire novel would be an unfathomably low probability, but not zero. Over an unfathomably long (infinite) time period, any nonzero probably becomes 100%.

Level 81
Apr 9, 2015
Well I'm not a mathematician but it was my understanding that even if the numbers never repeat at all they still are unsure if there aren't some sort of patterns that could emerge given enough computational power. Such patterns could preclude there being a string of 1s and 0s (binary) trillions of digits long appearing anywhere in the sequence. But... shrug... not my field of expertise.

Kalbahamut, I think you are incorrect. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Infinite_monkey_theorem
+4
Level 75
Aug 9, 2016
I believe the theorem suggests that it will 'almost surely' happen, not that it will. On each individual keystroke there is a 1/26 chance of a particular letter being chosen (ignoring punctuation, spaces and whatnot for simplicity's sake and assuming each letter is equally likely). There may be a 1/17576 chance of getting a particular three character sequence, but if chance has already produced two characters in sequence, the chance of then getting the third remains 1/26. In other words, we are talking about an infinite sequence of 1/26 chances, which means there is a chance, however unimaginably, vanishingly small that you could end up (technically, you wouldn't 'end up') with simply an infinite line of 'q'.
+18
Level 56
Aug 13, 2016
I think that as kalbahamut has stated it, the 'Mona Lisa' scenario is not equivalent to 'digits in pi'. Suppose we rephrase it like this: "imagine an infinitely large number of pixel arrays, each of arbitrarily large but finite size, and each happily of the same aspect ratio as the Mona Lisa. Suppose each of the pixels in each of these can be any one of an arbitrarily large but finite number of colours. In an infinite number of randomly colour-filled grids, would any of them resemble the Mona Lisa, as closely as resolution and palette allows?" I think the answer to this question is "yes".

"...so you're saying there's a chance!"

Level 63
Apr 7, 2018
Every possible finite sequence of digits in pi is conjectured to come up eventually. This is equivalent to saying that pi is what is called 'normal' when written in any base. This means that if you go far enough there will be an equal proportion of each of the digits. So statistically a 1 and a 2 are just as likely to come up. But the conjecture is that this doesn't just work if the digits are in base 10, it works if they are in any base. This has been proven to be true of most irrational numbers, but it is very hard to prove that it is true about any specific irrational number. "Just because something is infinite and non-repeating it does not necessarily follow that it must contain every possible pattern". This is undeniably true but consider the example with the monkeys. There are 41 characters in your quote. Assuming there are 100 possibilities for each character (there would probably be fewer) this gives far less than 10^100 possibilities.
+4
Level 63
Apr 7, 2018
Some of these possibilities will have to repeat infinitely many times because the monkey would run out of new possibilities for sequences of 50 characters to write. So if it never typed your quote, it would be typing some sequences of 50 letters infinitely many times and others never. This seems extremely unlikely and indeed is (unless of course there is bias towards some combinations, for instance of the monkey preferred to type the same letter many times in a row). This is why the monkey will almost certainly type your quote eventually.
+6
Level 63
Apr 7, 2018
However this does not apply to infinite sequences. The probability of the monkey typing an infinite line of 'q' genuinely is 0 and so will almost certainly never happen. We are dealing with the infinite here so having a probability of 0 doesn't mean it is impossible. It just means that whatever probability you care to name greater than 0, the infinite line of 'q' will be less likely than that.

The number 0.112122122212222122222... is irrational (and so is infinitely long and non-repeating), but contains no digits other than 1 and 2. Infinitely many such numbers do not contain any particular finite string of numbers, though many more do.

Level 33
Sep 15, 2019
The chance really doesn't have to be all that much over zero to make it appear in an infinite set of numbers. I don't think the concept of infinity is being grasped quite correctly here. The numbers go on forever without repeating at any point, meaning that each extra digit is essentially random. This means that in any given set of 50 numbers, there is a 10 to the 50th power chance that it is the exact set of numbers that you guessed, which just isn't all that high when you have infinite possibilities in which it can happen.

This is only true under certain conditions. If we assume that there are infinitely many particles in the universe, the percentage of the space they take up is greater than 0%, that they are arranged randomly, that space is discrete and that the earth contains only finitely many particles the probability is 100% in an infinite universe. But many of these assumptions are likely to be false, most notably the random arrangement of particles and the infinite size of the universe.

Infinite doesn't mean that it contains every pattern. The number of one-third is 0.333333333333333333333333333 etc. It is infinite but doesn't contain every possible pattern.

Dec 17, 2019
1/3 is rational and therefore has a recursive decimal expansion, so it can't contain every possible finite string of decimal digits. Pi has been proven to be irrational so its decimal expansion isn't recursive, but it has not been proven to contain every possible finite string of decimal digits (though pretty much no mathematicians think that it doesn't).

I'll take that as a compliment with the caveat that, while I'm ready to argue any point that I've thought through, I'm also always willing to change my mind if someone is willing to engage me and prove me wrong. Most people don't like to engage, though, which is disappointing.

You mean I should prove that it is upon you to prove a statement. That concept is enshrined in many countries' legislatures including the United States, it is generally seen this way in philosophy and stated in Hitchens's razor: "What may be asserted without evidence, may be dismissed without evidence." q.e.d.

But my stating that it is enshrined in american law, etc. is evidence of the truth of my before statement, thus making it a statement which needs evidence to be dismissed.

Level 57
Mar 14, 2021
Just because it is an infinitely repeating irrational number does not mean that it will have every possible pattern. Some numbers just follow a strict pattern and only pass certain ones places. For a simple example, divide 100 by 3. 33.3 repeating is infinite, so shouldn't it pass every number pattern? No.
+1
Level 55
Mar 14, 2021
The only way to prove there are any pattern of 50 digits is to find them in the list of the known digits of Pi.

Nobody knows if every pattern is inside Pi digits, and the infinity isn't a proof at all as long you have not proved the Pi digits don't follow a law...

Level 55
Mar 16, 2021
LudwigVonKoopa no it doesn't mean that.

Imagine you have the following number : 0.12345678910111213141516... an infinite number where you just add the next integer and so on.

Then you decide a rule where there is never a "2" after or before a "3" (if it occurs you just remove the "2"), the number you obtain is infinite too but you'll never get any random 50 digits in it, since 50 digits with "23" ou "32" in it will never be.

You see the point ?

I think some people have made it to all 50 but, two things, a) the statistics only tabulate data on people's first attempt. If they make subsequent attempts and do better it doesn't affect the stats. and b) it could be that fewer than 1 in 200 people gets past the 39th place, which would mean fewer than half a percent, but still some people. I'm not sure if the stats round down to 0% or not, but I assume that with all the people who have taken this before at least one person has stopped the timer or looked up pi and cheated their way to a perfect score on their first attempt, even if they couldn't do it from memory, so I also assume that the stats must round down if it's a number less than 0.5%

Australia: one of the few places an American can go and not feel like his own country is a little short on history.

Serbia: ripped-off at the border. Unfriendly people. Dreary boring cities. Then upon attempting to exit had my car and the love of my life the past 14 years stolen from me without reason by corrupt border cops. Tried to get it back but even providing all the evidence that was asked for to prove the car was legally registered, the kangaroo courts there didn't want to return my stolen property. What a pathetic excuse for a country if they have to resort to outright theft of tourists' property to fund their anemic economy.

I think it used to go up to 200 when I originally made it. The idea being that you could test yourself to see how many you could get in 15 seconds with no upper limit.

what is wrong with you people! i knew that energy equals mass times the speed of light squared before einstein was even born and i DEFINITELY knew the digits of pi when i was in the bleeding first grade! all 852 digits. what? you didn't think that the digits of pi eventually stopped? that's propaganda for you. scientists say that pi has an infinite amount of digits but it was actually a complex hoax invented by hitler in 1939 that would trick the minds of the jewish scientists like einstein. so pi actually has 852 digits and you can find the records in any public library. also pi is a palindrome, which most people don't know since they think it has infinite digits. also if you graph a circle with the exact 852 digits the circle will become such a circle that the human eye is tricked into seeing a shape with 3.1415(...) sides. which of course is impossible and therefore any calculator or other method of graphing is dysfunctional when it comes to graphing the real pi digits. peace out yo

Way too easy. Make it 300 digits and then it will be a little challenging. Keep in mind I am known throughout my school as the champion of Pi memorization.
