Extra Exercises for 2/2/09 references to pari are to the program gp.exe that will be available when the program is installed. 1. Calculate the continued fraction expansion of p 3 assertion 265 153 < p 3 < 1351 780 as convergents. Show that if 265 153 is the n th convergent then the n +1 convergent C n +1 p 3 < C n +1 <

Unformatted text preview: 1351 780 and the n +2 satis&amp;es 265 153 &lt; C n +2 &lt; p 3 . Can you think of a reason why Archimedes used the choices above? 2. Use Pari to calculate the &amp;rst 4 convergents of &amp; (Pi in Pari). Use Pari to &amp;nd the decimal expansions of these convergents (if you enter 22.0/7 you will get the decimal expansion). 3. Calculate by hand the continued fraction decomposition of a) 2813/113 b) 2701/409. Show your work and check using Pari gp. 1...
