This delicious and open-ended problem appeared in Gary Antonick's short-lived NYT's column Numberplay.
At a restaurant, the check for your meal comes as: "Pi dollars due. Exact payment required." What do you do?
Place 3 $1 bills orienting them on the table to form a capital Greek letter π.
An added bonus is that 3 is floor(π) and the nearest integer to π.
