Randall Munroe has a great sence of humor! I would love to see the look on the bank employees face when they get to this check! Have a look at some of his cool math shirts.

Ë›dont remember that sum, but its definitely 1/2 + 1/4 + 1+8 … which is more than 0.002, i think that the sum is 1. and that eË›taupi i dont know whats tau, because that is variable (correct me with value if i am wrong), that would be +/- 2,6Ë›3.14 thats not null either. if tau is 1 the result would be 0.002+1+20,09. thats my opinion 🙂

exp(i*pi) = -1, it it not tau. It is ‘i’ = sqrt(-1), and by eulers identity exp(i*pi) = cos(pi) + i*sin(pi) = -1. The sum is equal to 1, so it is 0.002 + (-1) + 1 = 0.002 .

ok, my mistake, didnt read it correctly, thanks for explanation

I like the memo.

$536.49 roughly

e^(i*pi) is -1 and the series is equal to 1. If you’ve heard the audio that goes with the check it’s supposed to be .002.
