Hi,

Having been slack for several months, I’m now getting back to memory work. One feat I’d like to master is memorising/recalling pi.

I’ve begun easily enough with the first hundred digits and, having only got started this afternoon, have been able to hit scores of 10/10 when asked where random numbers occur. (I should increase this number, but it seemed enough to start off with.)

I wondered what methods people use to pinpoint exact locations - eg the 19th/54th/92nd etc number of pi. For the first hundred, I memorised the first 100 in batches of 3 digits, then simply recalled where the 30/60/75/90 cut-offs were. That - and simple maths - allowed me to know where random numbers fell.

That’s fine for just 100 digits but probably unworkable if I go much higher - which I’d like to.

Any tips/advice would be gratefully received.

Thanks,

James
