RE: Can you calculate Pi using a Solver?
Ah, always interesting to get some unexpected results  thanks everyone!
In some, then, we see a 'sigma' function being used to do most of the work, and the solver is only needing to cope with a simple transformation like reciprocal or square root. I hadn't realised a 'sigma' function might be to hand  of course these offerings are valid, for the machines which offer 'sigma'. For the first submission, the iterative one posted by sliderule, is there a way to render this as a Solver problem? Quote:We now have our iterative formula, S’ = √2r²  r√4r²  S² Likewise, for the AGM method posted by Albert Chan, is there a way to get a Solver to do the work, rather than a program?
