Monday is March 14 – in other words it’s Pi Day!

Many math fans consider every March 14 as Pi Day, but this year it's special because it's 3-14-16.

The first six digits in pi are 3.14159, which rounded up means you get 3.1416.

Quite simply, on this Pi Day we want to know on our ABC Action News Facebook page, what's your favorite type of pie?
 

Pizza Hut is giving away 3.14 years worth of free pizza pies to those who can solve some in-depth math questions.
 
The pizza chain has partnered with math whiz John H. Conway, a professor emeritus at Princeton University, to devise the three equations, carrying in difficulty from high school to PhD level.
 
The math problems will be posted here at 8 a.m. Monday.
