  • Chudnovsky Formula To Compute 960
    1,800 words
    π is the mysterious number that most people think is merely 3.14. π is the ratio of a circle's circumference to its diameter. π has been calculated to 206,158,430,000 digits, which was accomplished by Yasumasa Kanada and Daisuke Takahashi from the University of Tokyo in September of 1999. On the other hand, there were the Babylonians and Hebrews who lived and died, believing that π was simply 3. Evidence from the Rhin d papyrus shows that the Egyptians knew 3.16, but implied ...

    CHINESE REMAINDER THEOREM WHAT IS IT Mathematics plays an important role in our world, as we know it. It is used everyday to solve all kinds of complex problems enabling us to create a better place for everyone to live in. One particular aspect of Mathematics known as the Chinese Remainder Theorem has a very interesting background. The Chinese Remainder Theorem was believed to have been created around 3rd Century AD by Sun Tzu Suan Ching and is the earliest recorded congruence problems in Chines...

    Leonardo Pisano I researched a scientist or rather a mathematician that made contributions to his discipline such that they have affected a majority of the people that have lived on this earth since his time. His name is Leonardo Pisano. It is hypothesized that Leonardo was born in the town of Pisa which is in modern day Italy circa 1170. Leonardo moved at a young age with his father to a town in northern Algeria. Leonardo's father held a diplomatic post where his job was to represent the mercha...
  • Approximate Value Of Pi
    505 words
    In mathematics, Pi is the symbol denoting the ratio of the circumference of a circle to its diameter. The ratio is approximately 3.14159265, pi being an irrational number (one that cannot be expressed as a simple fraction or as a decimal with a finite number of decimal places) and a transcendental number (one without continuously recurrent digits). Electronic computers in the late 20th century have carried pi to more than 100,000,000 decimal places. Pi occurs in various mathematical calculations...

    Translate the T-shape to different positions. Investigate relationships between the T-total and the T-number and the grid size. 3) Use grids of different sizes again, try other transformations and combinations of transformations. Investigate relationships between the T-total and the T-number and the grid size and the transformations. First is the T-shape in question: 123 11 20 This is the T-shape and here is the Difference T-shape: N-19 N-18 N-17 N-9 N This shows the difference N = T-number In t...

  • Numbers Of Pi
    300 words
    In mathematics pi is the ratio of the circumference of a circle to its diameter. The ratio for pi is about 3.14, but the strange thing about pi is that it goes on forever and it will never stop! No matter how hard you try, you will never reach the last number of pi. Pi is of great importance in the measurement of circles but also in more advanced mathematics in connection with such topics as continued fractions, logarithms of imaginary numbers, and periodic functions. Through out the ages of tim...
