Any help with page 6? I’ve read all the hints, but my brain doesn’t understand this one.

Hi Lindsey,
Spoiler!
The hint at the bottom of the clue page says that ‘something is wrong’. The clue diagram could have several things wrong, but the easiest thing to check is the number.
Spoiler!
First you need to recognise what the number is. It’s well-known to mathematicians. If you type the first few (4 or so should do it) digits into a search engine, you should be able to find out.
Don’t read the next bit until you’ve done the above steps.
Spoiler!
Next, count the digits of the number in the puzzle. As you now know, the number is Pi. Pi has been calculated to a huge amount of digits, some people have put this online. You’ll only need Pi to 30 digits. Compare Pi from the website with the number in the book.
Spoiler!
You should have found 4 digits that are wrong in the book. Generally we take numbers from left to write or in a clockwise direction. You have a choice - use the wrong numbers from the book or use the corrected form from the internet.
Spoiler!
The corrected numbers are the solution.
Your answer should be: (only read this after trying the options above)
