Approximate pi with scilab

Post by RobJones » Tue Feb 06, 2018 4:58 am

What do people think is a good way to calculate an approximation of pi with scilab? I don't necessarily need the code, I can come up with that. I just need some ideas of what are good ways to approximate it.

Not sure is this is what you are looking for, but I found another gem in www.triusinc.com/techs. The files is Estimating_pi__scilab_Karahalios.pdf and here is the whole URL:www.triusinc.com/techs/Estimating_pi__s ... halios.pdf.

And I am uploading a copy attached to this message. I hope this answers your question.

That's great! A lot more than I was looking for (I was only looking for direction), but I'll take it. And, it came just-in-time. Thank you so very much.
