while (pi_error>0.0000000000005) (Of course, consult the textbook for proper syntax of the while or do-while statement! Don't forget to declare and initialize pi_error at the correct places in your program!) Hints: (about the error variable) Be careful about the value you select to initialize pi_error. If you use a do-while loop, this may not be important, however. The do-while loop executes the loop body once before it evaluates the condition. As long as the loop body calculates pi_error before it is evaluated in the condition, you should be fine. However, you may want to initialize it anyway to avoid the possibility of it being undefined. What would happen if you set the value of pi_error to 0? What would happen if you set the value to 1.0? What data type do you need for these values, given the high precision that your problem demands? Don't use a data type that cannot handle the precision that you require. This condition statement would keep repeating the loop body until the desired accuracy is achieved.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
