By popular request, a place for you to discuss Maths of all forms. Somewhere to think about algorithms and the applications of maths to programming too.enSat, 30 Sep 2023 15:29:06 GMTvBulletin60https://www.vbforums.com/images/misc/rss.pngVBForums - Maths Forum

calculating Pi

Thu, 14 Sep 2023 20:11:05 GMTHi.
I have read up on a number of ways to have an app calculate pi, but I keep coming back to the same hard limit. Pretty much every app I know of in Windows stops adding decimal places after about 10.
If I wanted to calculate Pi to 1000 decimal places, the algorithm is just going to round to the nearest billionth (or whatever). What am I missing?
How are computers getting pi into the trillions of digits?Hi.
