%N Decimal expansion of (3/2)*Pi.

%C As radians, this is equal to 270 degrees or 300 gradians.

%C Multiplying a number by -i (with i being the imaginary unit sqrt(-1)) is equivalent to rotating it by this amount on the complex plane.

%C Named 'Pau' by Randall Munroe, as a humorous compromise between Pi and Tau. - _Orson R. L. Peters_, Jan 08 2017

%C (3*Pi/2)*a^2 is the area of the cardioid whose polar equation is r = a*(1+cos(t)) and whose Cartesian equation is (x^2+y^2-a*x)^2 = a^2*(x^2+y^2). The length of this cardioid is 8*a. See the curve at the Mathcurve link. - _Bernard Schott_, Jan 29 2020
