@naraku, it's close to pi/2.
@Ispil, does that have any reason to converge to (a ratioal function of) pi, or did you just write a random way to get 3.1415 ?

Sorry about that, there was an extra square root in there. There should be a total of 9, not 10, with the last being the square root of 2+1. As for why it converges to pi, it is a variation of Viéte's formula, which can be manipulated into an approximation of pi. There, I simply posted a version of Viéte's formual when n (a particular variable in the function) is 8.

Apple? Recently bought some blueberry pi, myself. Still have to try it.

I meant apple pie. Made with apples.

@Duoas the link you provided was to the source file identical to that in your post, it explains nothing.

Why is everyone reported in this thread?

Because some kid is bored out of his mind and passes his time that way.

L B, when did you first join, I estimate : 4 years, 4 days, 4 hours, 4 minutes, 4 seconds ago.

You mean you can't see my profile?

Uh, I thought only certain people had powers to report.

@Duoas is that in response to a deleted post?

Austin J said that everyone was reported. Was he just misreading something?
