I'm adding like terms of this series, and finding formulae for it. YES, it does to pi, you can even check it. n = 0 16(16(2n+1)^2 + 3)/4096n^4 + 8192n^3 + 5504n^2 + 1408n + 105 Which equates to: 304/105 + 2352/19305 + 6448/156009 + ... = Pi So yeah, I need some help here, LOL. And plus, nobody on the newsgroups would really help me. Oh, and by the way, can you guys please teach me how to get these formulae step by step?

But instead, I got twice pi! March 4th, 2010, 08:54 PM #16 Global Moderator   Joined: Dec 2006 Posts: 20,370 Thanks: 2007 You've multiplied by 2, so you're getting twice pi.

Except n changes between terms, so do I treat them like different denominators?
