Machine gun that shoots all the digits of pi
From Uncyclopedia, the content-free encyclopedia
The Machine gun that shoots out all the digits of pi is a type of gun made in Greece (Possibly used in the Hellenic Army) to kill people while it shoots out the digits of pi.
edit Old Kingdom Egypt
This gun dates back to the Old Kingdom Egypt, when they used it in the war between Lybia and the Phillistines, With its radius of 3+1/7 Inches. This was a great gun.
edit Ancient History
The Greeks remodeled the Egyptian gun and made it a Circle. This was used by the Babylonians, Egyptians and Greeks The oldest model known to date is 1900BC. They were given the circles of 25/8 and 256/81 Both of which are 1% the same with todays version. The Indian text "The weapon guide" shows the value of the weapon is 339/108 or 3.139. Archimedes (287-212BC) Was the first to estimate what the circles is, So he made his gun. By using the equivalent of 96 pieces of other guns, He proved that The average of this value was 3.1485
Ptolemy Gave the value of 3.1416 which he may have come from Apollonius of Perga.
Around AD265 The Wei Kingdom mathematician Liu Hu Provided a simple version to calculate the circle to any degree of accuracy. The He carried the calculation of a 3072-gon and put it into his gun. With the value of 3.1416. Later, he developed another way of making his Machine, It was quicker though, with the value of 3.14 with only a 96-gon.
Around AD480 The Chinese mathematician Zu Chong did Pi as 355/113 and showed that 3.1415926 < Pi 3.1415927. Using Liu's method applying to a 12288-gon. This style of gun would last for about 900 years.
edit Later History and Machine gun Companies
In 1400AD Madhava of Sangamagrama First known in such series. This was known as the Madhava-Lebiniz Line Then Sangamagra found The Machine-Pi. He even set a record Pi=3.14159265359. Just after he created his new gun. The ML-1. This record was there until beaten by Jamasid Al-kashi Who gave the estimate of pi to 16 digests. The First major european movement in this machine was by German Mathematician Ludolph van Ceulen (1540-1610) Who did the digits to 34 Digits. (Also founder of the Ceulen Machine Gun Co.) And now for the other founders of This machines Companies were:
- Francois Viete 1593
- John Wallis 1655
- John Machin 1706
Formulas after 1706 where known as the Machin Formulas.
It is now known that the circle of this machine is now about 1 Million digits known. (Not Kidding.)
