in reply to to calculate the value of π

in addition to previous comment I have to point out that you can't just use a usual division operator (4-4/3 ...) cause then you will found yourself restrained into IEEE 754 boundary (fixed mantissa length).

you need to implement your own tricky iterative algorithm using pure integer arithmetics. Good luck!
