# Is there a formula for calculating the value of pi?

Yes. There are several, but some are "hard to use" or "hard to understand" and some other ones, particularly the "simple and easy" ones take a lot of work (a lot of steps) to derive "the next digit" in the sequence.. Use the link to the Wikipedia article on calculating the value of pi and see what you think will work for you. If push comes to shove, there is software that will turn your PC into a pi computing machine. Need a link to the Wikipedia article? You got it.

# Which mathematician invented the formula for perimeter?

Although some have said Archimedes, my opinion is that the formulas for area and perimeter of a rectangle were well known before his time (300BC). The Babylonians in 1500BC knew how to create Pythagorean triples, so I wouldn't be surprised if they knew this. Archimedes did discover more difficult formulas, such as perimeter and area of a circle, and volume of a sphere and a cone.

# What formula equates to pie?

any formula with pi in it can be switched around so that pi is on one side of the equation and everything else is on the other side.. ex.. C = circumference of a circle. r = radius of a circle. C = 2 * pi * r. or. C / 2 = pi * r. or C / (2r) = pi. Therefore: pi = C / (2r)

# What are brackets used for when creating a formula or calculation?

Brackets are used for creating an array formula. From Microsoft: An array formula is a formula that can perform multiple calculations on one or more of the items in an array. Array formulas can return either multiple results or a single result. For example, you can place an array formula in a range of cells and calculate a column or row of subtotals. You can also place a formula in a single cell and calculate a single amount. An array formula that resides in multiple cells is called (logically enough) a multi-cell formula, and an array formula that resides in a single cell is called a single-cell formula. To multiply the values in the array (the cell range C2 through D11), select cells E2 through E11, and then enter the following formula in the formula bar: =C2:C11*D2:D11 Press CTRL+SHIFT+ENT ER to enter the array formula (and observe the brackets in the formula). TIP: If you later go back and edit the array formula, remember to press CTRL+SHIFT+ENTER . Don't just press ENTER or you will destroy the array formula and display an error message until you go to the cell and press CTRL+SHIFT+ENTER again.

# Does the value of pie change when you use it in different formulas?

No. I'm pretty sure you were talking about pi as in the number 3.14... if so, then no because since it is a number like 2 or 57 its value is always the same, no matter what formula.

# How do you create an IF formula for commission in excel using absolute value?

There were would be various approaches to this depending on specifically what you wanted to do, like what and how many rates there are. The following is a simple example based on a single commission rate and a value that has to be reached before commission is earned. If you take it that the value being checked for commission is in A3, the rate of commission is in B4, and the minimum value at which commissioned can be earned is in B5, then you could use the following formula: =IF(A3>=\$B\$5,A3*\$B\$4,0)

# Who are the great mathematician and their formula?

There are many great mathematicians who have formulas named after them. I'll start with Leonhard Euler (1707 - 1783), and Euler's Formula: . e ix = cos(x) + i sin(x), where x is expressed in radians, and i is the imaginary unit i=sqrt(-1) Gabriel Cramer, and Cramer's rule (not really a formula though). It is a method for solving systems of linear equations by expressing the equations as a matrix of coefficients, then taking determinants.

# What is the contribution of Indian mathematicians in the field of pie?

Many Indian mathematicians have made lot of effort on pi. 1)Madhava of Sangamagrama has also made huge contributions on pi. He was able to estimate Ï as 3.14159265359, which is correct to 11 decimal places. 2)In the beginning of the 20th century, the Indian mathematician Srinivasa Ramanujan found many new formulas for pi. This formula was used to set several Ï computing records in the end of the 1980s, including the first calculation of over one billion (1,011,196,691) decimals in 1989. It remains the formula of choice for Ï calculating software that runs on personal computers.

# How do you create a complex formula that calculates a 30 percent decrease in Excel 2010?

You could do it in several ways. You could use the 30 percent directly or use 70 percent, as that is what is left when you reduce by 30 percent. Assuming the value was in D3, you could use any of these formulas to do reduce the value by 30%: =D3-D3*30% =D3*70% =D3/10*7 =D3/100*70 To find what the decrease actually is, which you could be looking for, you could use these formulas: =D3-D3*70% =D3*30% =D3/100*30 =D3/10*3 In both instances there are other ways it could be done.

# What do Formulas and calculations do?

A formula is simply a kind of recipe for a standard calculation - acalculation you do repeatedly. For example, the formula for thearea of a circle lets you calculate the area of the circle when youknow its radius. Calculations involving formulae are used to deducenew things from data you have available. In the example above, youfigure out an area where you only knew a radius. But there are manyother cases where you take conclusions from known data.

# What lasting achievement did Indian mathematicians make?

Indian mathematicians of the Gupta period made importantcontributions. Aryabhata (AHR â¢ yuh â¢ BUHT â¢ uh) was one of thefirst scientists known to have used algebra. Indian mathematiciansexplained the idea of infinity-something without an end. They alsoinvented the symbol "0" and connected it with the idea of nothing.The Indians' invention of zero affected the study of mathematicsand science. Modern technology, such as computers, would not bepossible without the concept of zero. Gupta mathematicians developed symbols for the numbers 1 to 9 thatwe use today. In the a.d. 700s, Arab traders adopted these numbersymbols, or numerals. European traders later borrowed them from theArabs. In the a.d.1200s, use of these numbers spread though Europeand replaced Roman numerals. Today, this system of number symbolsis known as the Indian-Arabic numerical system.

# Which mathematician first used the symbol pie and why?

It was popularised by the mathematician William Jones in 1706 and pi is the 16th letter of the Greek alphabet and it was chosen because the first letter of the Greek word for perimeter begins with pi.
