I am going through the exercises of this old C programming book, that
doesn't have the answer in the back. Which is good.
However I am not understanding a particular question.
Write a program that estimates the value of the mathematical constant e by using the formula:
e = 1 + 1/1! + 1/2! + 1/3! + ...
I understand that 1!, 2!, 3! are the factorial of those numbers. But what
throw me off is how far should I go computing. Notice that is + ....
And if it is a constant how come it can be change?.
Anyone mind to show me some light on the matter?. I'm quite sure I can resolve the equation only if I knew what is being ask of me.
