And it isn't even msuch a good way. If my answer is incorrect you supply the exact number for Pi. I did. Pi is exactly equal to the infinite sum pi=4*(1  1/3 + 1/5  1/7 + 1/ 9 ) You can? Didn't think you could. In fact no matter what you give as Pi your number of digits you leave off will be the same as the number of digits I left off using just the number 3. Prove me wrong. Decimal expansions are not the only way to define a number.

That's what you gotta love about polymath! That Christhole is scratching his balding head getting even redder in the cheeks because he is totally lost but saying to himself... But..but...

Langoliers is so achingly dumb. I remember using the series described by Polymath at school. It really shouldn't be so difficult for Langoliers to get it. Khatru wrote: <quoted text> Sonic boom!

One does not 'list' a number. Pi is pi. It is equal to the infinite sum I gave above. There are several other characterizations of it. A decimal expansion is only one way of many. And it isn't even msuch a good way.

I did. Pi is exactly equal to the infinite sum pi=4*(1  1/3 + 1/5  1/7 + 1/ 9 )

Decimal expansions are not the only way to define a number. List it all. Or admit that 3 is also a form of Pi

What I gave is an exact formula. It happens to be an infinite sum with a specific pattern. But that infinite sum is *exactly* equal to pi. You don't list a number. You can give a decimal expansion. You can give a continued fraction expansion. You can give a series expansion. None of those are lists. Perhaps you should learn some basic math. Oh, by the way, what is the circumference of a vat that is 10 cubits across? You can give your answer to the nearest cubit if you want.

Keep waiting, cuntard. 4 *(1  1/3 + 1/5  1/7 + 1/9 ...) is pi. People were doing this in the 1600s. If you're thicker than people in the 1600s, keep complaining. I can show you how to do the first thousand iterations in something as shabby as Excel if you really care. More here: www.geom.uiuc.edu/~huberty/math5337/groupe/ex... If you don't like pi not being exactly 3, go tell your god off for being so awkward. Langoliers wrote: <quoted text> Don't stand on the side lines cracking poor joke, list Pi I'll wait.

Still waiting for the exact number of Pi. Shug""""
