Your code looks like C(++), so I assume you are talking about M_PI in a C/C++ code file. M_PI is defined in math.h, usually located at /usr/include/ for linux gcc.

```
# define M_PI 3.14159265358979323846 /* pi */
```

If I got your question wrong please be more specific.

`pi of 3.142`

as in math.
