# "ππι"

## Translation:p pee

August 30, 2016

Is this real? >.<

It's just the letter π, first the symbol and then spelled out. Like the exercise λ λαμδα, α αλφα, μ μι, etc.

And does it mean the same thing to Greek speakers as it does to English speakers?

Well in the Greek numbersystem still in use

### π = 80

and should be in the translations.

Π or πει ή πι is also the name of the letter π which denotes the sound p in pee

As well as the constant π known as Arcimedes constant in more than 1000 years because Archimedes was the first one to give an algoritm for the irrational number π (3,1415 ...)

The ancient Greek philosopher Platon is also involved in π.

Ηe said: Eternal the God the great geometrician, or

Αεί ο Θεός ο μέγας γεωμετρεί = 314159 (αει = 3, ο = 1, θεος = 4, ο = 1, μεγας = 5, γεωμετρει = 9, in the Gr. numbersystem)

and when will Duo teach us the Greek numbersystem together with the letters?

Kirikraka, please will you teach us this Greek numbersystem?

The symbols needed are 27. The Greek alphabet contains only 24 letters so 3 more come into use:

Ϝ δίγαμμα from which our F, later it became ς and is now often στ called στίγμα

ϟ κόππα also Q (became our letter q)

ϡ σαμπί, like pi, σαν πι: ν + π is μπ

To Ελληνικό σύστημα αρίθμησης

Α, Β, Γ, Δ, Ε, F, Ζ, Η, Θ = 1, 2, 3, ... , 9

Ι, Κ, Λ, Μ, Ν, Ξ, Ο, Π, Q = 10, 20, 30, ... ,

Ρ, Σ, Τ, Υ, Φ, Χ, Ψ, Ω, ϡ = 100, 200, 300, ... 900

(Ancient Greek did not have small letters. They can also be used)

The Greeks had a lot of fun playing with that words are numbers

Ex. If you put one hundred in the middle of a burning fire/ φωτιάς you will find a king.

SOLUTION: Another word for fire is πυρός. Ιf we put 100=ρ in the middle we get Πύρρος οr Pyrros king of Epiros.

Ορισμός-Definition: XY = X + Y

The usual order is the greater number first sometimes with an acute accent to show that it is a number not a word: 315, 300(T)>10(I)>5(E) is not wriiten ETI though it gives the same number as TIE or TIE´ to show that it is a number and not a tie

• 153 = ρνγ οr ρνγ´, 306 = τς, ϡqζ´ = 999

FRACTIONS

were written as a couple: first the numerator ( only if not one) followed by the denominator and 2 accents showing that this is a fraction

one third = γ''

2/5 = β'ε''

LARGE NUMBERS

Ορισμός: The accute accent upsidedown in front of a number means 1000 times. (I do not have this symbol so I use ,)

5823 = 5000 (,ε)+800 (ω)+20 (κ)+3 (γ) = ,εωκγ´

, ΒΙF = 2016

10 000 = M , η μυριάς/ the myriad

Here you can find what I said maybe more easy to understand and a lay-out which I cannot produce Classical Greek Numbers http://gwydir.demon.co.uk/jo/numbers/greek/

Thank you! Do have a lingot

No, πι does not mean pee. :-)

But πιπί kinda does.

:-D πιπί and peepee... You are right, I totally missed that.

The name of the Greek letter π is pi in English
