Number Facts on Google

This is a quick one. Larry Page and Sergei Brin are so freakishly mathematic !

  • When Google filed the regulatory documents for its stockmarket listing in 2004, it said that it planned to raise $2,718,281,828, which is $e billion to the nearest dollar (e=2.178).
  • A year later, it filed again to sell another batch of shares—precisely 14,159,265, which represents the first eight digits after the decimal in the number pi (3.14159265).
