Unformatted text preview: 1351 780 and the n +2 satis&es 265 153 < C n +2 < p 3 . Can you think of a reason why Archimedes used the choices above? 2. Use Pari to calculate the &rst 4 convergents of & (Pi in Pari). Use Pari to &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...
