If you were to imagine a line segment of length pi, I would guess it would have to be finite. But since pi is an irrational number, it has infinitely many decimals so can't you just keep sort of zooming in on the end of the segment so that it sort of keeps on getting longer indefinitely?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Pi is just an example, but I'm sure any irrational number would bring up the same idea. Any thoughts on this?
