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.
Liu Hui of the Wei Kingdom around 265 AD.
archimedes, pi is the name of the greek letter p, which was used as the shortened version of the greek word perimeter,or circumference of a circle.. archimedes was looking fo…r a formula to find the area of a circle, and he required a more accurate value for the constant pi. previously pi had been assigned a very approximate value of 1/3 or 22/7.
aryabhatta discovered it as 3.1416. value of i is 22/7
James steven. pi = c/d
The value of pie calculated by first Indian scientist Baudhayana
You are probably thinking about Rahmanujan. However, he didn't really "create pi" - God created pi. Nor did he discover it, pi was known well before Rahmanujan. What he did do… was to find some very efficient formulae to calculate pi to many decimal places - formulae that are still used today.
