I hope it's the correct term, but for the denominator I find 16k^2+16k+3, so if initially is correct Hoempa April 2nd, 2010, 03:37 AM #22 Math Team   Joined: Apr 2010 Posts: 2,780 Thanks: 361 Re: Pi formula Has any of you guys ever tried this formula? for use: calculate in degrees instead of radian. Approaches pi more accurate.

In your limit, how would you evaluate the trigonometric functions without already knowing the value of pi? April 18th, 2010, 09:57 PM   #24

Hello skipjack,

Good question, to find it, indeed I used the value of pi. To evaluate, use

Compare for example f(10000) and values for g(x), and compare these values, the higher you choose x, the more accurate you approach pi. g(x) converges much faster to pi.

The formula you posted doesn�t seem quite accurate at x=10.000 Hoempa May 11th, 2010, 01:41 PM #29 Math Team   Joined: Apr 2010 Posts: 2,780 Thanks: 361 Re: Pi formula Anyway, I see what you mean. With the value for i'm using from a TI calculator, x=10000 gives in the formula I posted, g(x), , substract pi gives me 0. for f(x), f(10000) on my calculator gives approx 3.14159260191, an error of . Makes me think that g(x) approaches faster then f(x). I have found g(x) by comparing the errors for approximating pi according to my calculator of and . edit: I have written a formula that would tell for x, how many decimals you could find from \pi. I'll see if I can find that.

Thus, if you use an approximation for pi, your result will not be more accurate than your approximation. Or what is it that I don't understand? Tags formula ,
