Monte Carlo Approximation Of  π

Main Concept

The Monte Carlo method in approximating π follows the following steps:

 

1. 

A number of points are selected at random within a square with an inscribed circle

2. 

The number of points inside the circle divided by the total number of points will result in an approximation of π/4. We multiply by 4 to get the estimate for π.

 

Adjust the number of points being plotted and see how it affects the approximation of Pi.
