For those of you that don't know, PI = Diameter / Radius It used for the area of a circled: Area = PI * r ^ 2

I guess my mind won't work in rounding with these series things. I'll have to add another dimension to my problem-solving, where every 8 could be 8.82... It's aiight.

I did it another way and got 280,b y checking the diff between the numbers and the diff between those numbers and then adding back to reach the next no. Wonder if that made any sense ! :D

:-? your 2nd # doesnt make sense 3*3*3=27 not 31

It's not 3 cubed, stupid (that's your name, not an insult :) ) it's 3 to the power of pi. Not the same at all.
