Pi in Excel

Excel is perfect for all kinds of calculations. Therefore, it can certainly happen that you want to calculate with pi in Excel. But how do you do that? Do you enter all decimal places by hand or do you round so much that the result is not representative? Fortunately, there is another way to represent pi in Excel very accurately. Therefore, we would like to show you exactly how you can enter pi in Excel. By the way, we do not mean the symbol π, but the mathematical value behind it.

Enter Pi in Excel – Why the value is not quite accurate:

Although Pi can be used in Excel with the help of a formula, everyone should know that Pi has an infinite number of decimal places. Unfortunately, this is not the case in Excel, so that rounding errors will occur in any case. However, the function in Microsoft Excel calculates with 14 decimal places, so the deviation due to rounding is very small and can therefore be neglected in most cases. Nevertheless, we wanted to mention this so that you know about this issue.

Step-by-step instructions:

  • Open Microsoft Excel
  • Select a cell
  • Enter the following: =PI()
  • Done!

If you have inserted Pi, you can now perform calculations with this value without any problems. From there very simply, if one knows that an appropriate function is available. We wish you success and a lot of fun in using Microsoft Excel. If you have further questions, we will be happy to produce corresponding Youtube videos on the subject of Excel and Microsoft Office.
