## Value of e

At work we have a cooperative based on the honor system. You take a drink or a snack, then you put one cross per item in a grid in front of your name.

I was bored with this array of X. So I started drawing little symbols and other stuff to change from the X. When the grid changed, I had to think about something else, and I remembered the math lessons. So my next sequence of number was the digits of PI, and now I am searching for the digits of e.

I went to the wikipedia entry, then tried the math.e python, and finally a colleague gave me e to the 50,000 digit. That’s a lot of snacks.

I am now trying to find the next number or sequence to use for the next refill of the fridge.

For future references, here is e to the 20th digit from wikipedia:

2.71828 18284 59045 23536

and from Piguy’s Math Page, e to the 50th digit:

2.71828 18284 59045 23536 02874 71352 66249 77572 47093 69995
