For one number B to be inside the number A you are saying that (iff)

Re: Mathematica high precision question

It was only a matter of time before someone started on pi :D Such a boring number. A cure is to do Dedekind cuts. Archimedes, in his Measurement of a Circle, created the first algorithm for the calculation of π based on the idea that the perimeter of any (convex) polygon inscribed in a circle is les...
