The number zero in pi has something in common with the poor kids whose last names begin with “Z.” You know, the ones who are almost always last when the teacher arranges them in an alphabetical line. They always come last unless the teacher decides to spice things up and reverse the alphabet.
Technically, zero has it worse than the Z kids who have to sit through 25 letters before theirs is called. It doesn’t get its time to shine in pi until it appears at the 32nd position. However, zero pops up in pi more than any other number within the first million decimal places, showing up 99,959 times.
