We know that ##\pi## originates from the L/D relationship of a circumference, where "L" represents the perimeter of a circumference and "D" represents its diameter. The size of a circumference does not matter, as both the perimeter and the diameter of any circumferecence always maintain the same L/D proportionality relationship.

Normally, in engineering problems related to the circumference, ##\pi## is kept until the final result of the calculations, that is: until the moment when a project will be executed. At this time, depending on the precision required, ##\pi## will be reduced to a number with a greater or lesser number of places after the decimal point.

##\pi## is related qualitatively like the L/D ratio of a circumference, but when it needs to be represented quantitatively, it falls into an inevitable trap: it falls into the category of irrational numbers, that is: ##\pi## is never represented numerically in its entirety.

The two best-known counting systems, that is: decimal and binary, are unable to represent ##\pi## in its entirety.

Finally, the question:

Is there a counting system other than the binary or decimal system capable of representing ##\pi## in its entirety?
