I've doubled the speed of the Leibniz series for pi, while finding a formula for the denominators. 8/3 + 8/35 + 8/99 + ... Let p be the previous denominator. Let t be the number of terms so far. n = p + (32*(t-1)) Now, I'm having trouble doubling it AGAIN, and finding formulae for it. Apparently, it still has 32, attached to it. 304/105 + 2,352/19,305 + 6,448/156,009 + ... So, I need some help, here.

Why can't you just apply the same method again to obtain a second formula? In your last series, the nth numerator (starting at n = 0) is given by 16(16(2n + 1)� + 3).

I gave the expression for the numerator, which is obtainable by working out 4/(8n + 1) - 4/(8n + 3) + 4/(8n + 5) - 4/(8n + 7).

It's this: Code: p + (2^(t+9)) Thanks, skipjack, for the other formula!  January 23rd, 2010, 12:48 AM #8 Global Moderator   Joined: Dec 2006 Posts: 20,926 Thanks: 2205 That's incorrect. The correct formula is p + 2048(t - 1), which is easily derived from the result I gave earlier. January 23rd, 2010, 10:18 AM #9 Newbie   Joined: Dec 2009 Posts: 15 Thanks: 0 Re: Pi formula Whoops! Works for the first 2 differences. February 12th, 2010, 10:23 AM #10 Newbie   Joined: Dec 2009 Posts: 15 Thanks: 0 Re: Pi formula Okay, this is the finished product. Starting with n = 0: 16(16(2n+1)^2 + 3) ______________________________________ 4096n^4 + 8192n^3 + 5504n^2 + 1408n + 105 Sorry about the double post, it wouldn't let me edit! -_- Tags formula Search tags for this page
