Pi is a multipurpose word with several definitions and is pronounced just like the food pie. You may know it best as the ratio of circumference to diameter of a circle, which we usually interpret as approximately 3.14, though the string of numbers can go on forever. It's considered to be a mathematical constant and is used in many mathematical or physical equations. However, it's also an irrational number because it's impossible to know its exact value, making it a fascinating number for mathematicians.
As a noun, pi may refer to the 16th letter of the Greek alphabet. The symbol for this letter (π), which is translated as p, is used to represent the mathematical ratio of pi.
The word pi can also be a verb, meaning to mix things up or create disorder. If referring to printing, it means to just dump random letters on the page and indiscriminately print them in a massive jumble, like a word search. Any type of mixed mess of objects can also be referred to as pied, since it's a disaster.
