Approximations 1999-12-20 From Adrian Valc:Long-time ago I red an article about surprizing (and in a way frustrating) results in math, for example the limit of a nicely defined infinite series which was believed to be a simple rational number, but later was determined to be a transcendent number that missed the rational value by an incredibly small amount (so for example the limit proved to be 2.75000...00137.. with a lot of 0's in between). I cannot find that article anymore, so i was wondering if you have any such examples, or you can point to any relevant information source? Answered by Chris Fisher. Radicals 1998-09-15 From Lana Sabo:Question: fifteen times the square root of twenty, divided by the square root of 2. nine subtract the square root of forty-five, divided by 3. the square root of 18 plus the square root of 12, divided by the square root of 3.Answered by Harley Weston.
