# Irrational -> Rational Number

#### akunzler

Hey, I was using guess and check to find a value, and it ended up being close to 15.83007499. I am certain it could be represented by an equation, but I can't find out what that would be. There is a good chance it would be a log natural.
If you do find out what it is, I'd love to know.
Thanks!!

Guess and check for what problem? We can't work in a vacuum!

Is that a typo? I think it should be 15.83007477. Double check your value and get back to me asap.

It could be incorrect in the last couple of decimal places, I'm approximating using desmos. I can definitely keep guessing and checking, I just want to try to find a pattern based on other values as well.
Thanks for the help!

Edit: Also I think I've found another way around it. A more simplified answer for this would be nice, but not super important. Thanks!

He's jerking your chain. None of us can help you until you tell us where the number is coming from (i.e., what is the problem statement).
