@Arjang : Your answer is a bit above the level of the students in question, and I am reasonably sure that the kid didn't mean it this way :) . Thanks for the answer, all the same.

comment Why is Pi equal to 3.14159…?
Thank you for all the answers! Three of the answers ( @user3123 , @Moron , @Derek Jennings ) are equally helpful. I'll leave it to my friend to decide which (all) to use (by the way, she was touched by the earnest way in which folks here responded to the question :) ). Since I have to choose one answer to accept, I am choosing @Moron's answer. Many thanks to all of you again.
