Great approximation! Fooled my fx-991EX as well. My Prime shows the approximation departs from pi by <1 part in 10^-12.

In double precision mode, the approximation varies from pi by~8.21*10^-14 on my WP 34S

Very nice approximation correct to fourteen digits!

The second is π.

Code:

`3.1415926535897111461`

3.1415926535897932384

^^^^^^

The second is π.

This will almost fit the fx-991ES screen:

\(\frac{1501}{150115}\rm{e}^{\frac{23}{4}}\)

No fooling this time, though:

\(3.141592653\)

Notice \(ln(100\pi)=5.749900072\) is close to 23/4 (but not close enough).

I like the following better, found with help of HP-32SII solver:

\(\ln\left(\frac{16\ln\left(878\right)}{\ln\left(16\ln\left(878\right)\right)}\right)\)

Five digits reused once yielding 10 correct digits.

Edited. Trouble with LATEX here on Chrome, so I've added a picture. Also, I cannot link the CASIO WES website here, the address between quotes above.
