Why is it fascinating?
Log in to reply
It seemed to me fascinating because
\(Oa = Ob , OA=OB \)
\(\frac{AB}{ab} =\frac{OA}{Oa}\)
\(\frac{Perimeter of the outer polygon}{Perimeter of the inner polygon} = \frac{n.AB}{n.ab} = \frac{AB}{ab}=\frac{OA}{Oa}\)
\(\frac{Circumference of outer circle}{Circumference of inner circle} = \frac{OA}{Oa} = \frac{Radius of outercircle}{radius of inner circle}\)
Thus
\( \frac{Circumference of outer circle}{radius of outercircle} = \frac{Circumference of inner circle}{radiusof inner circle}\)
You know \(\frac{Circumferenceofanycircle}{Diameter} =\) the constant\( \pi\)
The approximate values were given as \( \pi = \frac{22}{7}\) , more accurate was \(\frac{355}{113}\)
You can see now why it is fascinating@Agnishom Chattopadhyay

Which one is that which comes from arctan that is more simple and beautiful?
Log in to reply
To get this, you should realise arctan(1)=pi/4 and the. Just substitute arctan(1) with its taylor series.
However, your formula is better because it has faster convergence)

Pi, written as π, equals 3.1415926… and its digits goes on forever, without any repeating pattern. Numbers with this property are called irrational numbers. Many ancient mathematicians – including the famous Pythagoras – were horrified when they discovered that such bizarre and ‘impure’ numbers exist.
Today many mathematicians believe that Pi has an even more curious property: that it is a normal number. This would mean that the digits from 0 to 9 appear completely at random, as if nature had rolled a 10-sided dice, again and again, to find the next digit. It also means that if you think of any string of digits, like 123456789, it has to appear somewhere in the digits of Pi – but you might have to calculate millions of digits.
We could even convert an entire book, like the works of Shakespeare, into a very long string of digits (a = 01, b = 02, and so on). If Pi is normal, this string must also appear somewhere in its digits. But even if we used all computers on Earth to calculate more and more digits of Pi, we would probably have to look for longer than the age of the universe… The First few Digits of Pi

There are many different ways to calculate Pi, some of which use sequences or series of numbers. One example is the following series discovered by Gottfried Wilhelm Leibniz (1646 – 1716). As you add more and more terms, following the same pattern, the result will get closer to Pi:
\(π = \frac{4}{1} – \frac{4}{3} + \frac{4}{5} – \frac{4}{7} + \frac{4}{9} – \frac{4}{11} + …\)
Another sequence, published by Nilakantha Somayaji (1444 – 1544), is even better since it gets closer to Pi with fewer terms:
\(π = 3 + \frac{4}{2 × 3 × 4} – \frac{4}{4 × 5 × 6} + \frac{4}{6 × 7 × 8} – \frac{4}{8 × 9 × 10} + …\)
This formula was published by John Wallis in 1655:
\(π = 2 × \frac{2}{1} × \frac{2}{3} × \frac{4}{3} × \frac{4}{5} × \frac{6}{5} × \frac{6}{7} × \frac{8}{7} × \frac{8}{9} × …\)
Using powerful computers, Pi has been calculated up to 10 trillion digits (that’s a 1 with 13 zeros)! Because Pi is so easy to understand, yet important in many areas of mathematics, it enjoys an unusual popularity in our culture (unusual, at least, for areas of mathematics). There even is a Pi Day on 14 March or 22 July, since \(\frac{22}{7}\) is a close approximation to pi. @Agnishom Chattopadhyay

What's so special about this equation?
Log in to reply
This equation's speciality is that it uses irrational numbers to get very, very, very, very close to an integer. Check this one out: \(\displaystyle e^\pi -\pi = 19.999099979189 \approx 20\)
Is that a coincidence or what?!
P.S: You might wanna check out 163 and Ramanujan's constant.
Log in to reply
What does that even mean?
Log in to reply
That means that with irrational numbers, we can get as close as we want, at least for practicality's sake, to an integer. That just blows my mind!

It is similar to saying " 11 + 2 = 1 " (where the arithmetic is performed on the clock)
It is similar to saying "1 + 1 = 0 ". (Where the arithmetic is performed in the field of order 2)
Neither of these would be "acceptable", and are only technically right by omission. I value clarity of expression much more than showing off.
