How do we know that PI never stops repeating? Has anyone tried calculating it? Or is there some sort of pattern that tells you? (AFAIK, there hasn't been an exact PI formula discovered yet anyways)

If you say how do we know it doesn't stop repeating, how do we know that space never ends? It's like the same concept. Or in math, how do we know a line goes on forever? Nothing around has been able to prove things like this do stop repeating (closest that can be gotten is that we can't calculate further), therefore we say they go on forever. Or, it's like a rational function, how do we know that the function doesn't touch its asymptote(s)? We can't calculate it out since it would repeat for forever. Try to think of it this way: A number between 0 and 1, continually growing smaller and smaller. So say you have 0.1, then it goes to 0.01, then 0.001... You can just keep going back decimal places, it wont end.
the billionth number is 9 i think
But we don't know,
like we know 1/3 can't be expressed in decimal form, (.333333333333...)
but nobody even has a 100% accurate pie formula yet :/
