I was looking at methods of measuring pi arbitrarily and found this gem.
I thought to myself, hey that 239 sure looks familiar. I didn't understand that 4 in 4arctan(1/5) so I did the double angle thing twice on it.
Oh, yeah, I know where that came from now. Time to do the angle addition formula.
So, I guess this means there are infinite solutions just like this one for measuring pi.
Lots of 2arctans there, but I think there is only 1 4arctan. I've tried about 50 of the sequences just now. Maybe I'll have better luck if I tackle the 30/60
