Hello: I'm a student of City College of San Francisco. Right now, I have a project that I've been working on at least 4 days. Yet I still have no idea at all. The purpose of the project is to compute pi by using continued fraction. Here is the formula. pi = 3 + ( 1 / ( 7 + ( 1 / ( 7 + ( 1 / ( .... 1 / 7) that means 1 pi = 3 + ----------- 7 + / 1 \ ( ------ ) \ 7 + / ....... 1 + ---- 7 Is here any one who has a program that can follow the above formula and can generate pi?
