That's highly inefficient: using 18 digits to output 14 digits => 1814 = 4 digits "gained" (lost, more like). Far better woould be: 3*Ln(640320)/√163 = 3,1415926535897930+ which gives 17 digits (save 2 ulps) while using just 10 digits, i.e., 1710 = +7 digits gained. Besides, nothing of this has anything to do with getting Pi using a Solver, as the OP requested. V. All My Articles & other Materials here: Valentin Albillo's HP Collection
