    e^π (pronunciation)

    How would you pronounce "e^π"?

    Example: Which is larger, eπ or πe?
    [From a high school math test. (Translation mine.)]
    I am not a teacher. I am currently studying basic English grammar.

    "ee to the power of pie" or "ee to the pie".

    Try this: "ee to the pie eye equals minus one".

    How would you pronounce to? In its strong form (/tuː/, not /tə/)?

    Use the weak form. In the first side of the equation, put stress on ee and pie and eye, but not on to or the.

    ee to the pie eye
