I used Square Root of 2 for a couple reasons in preference to Pi in my Forth
I think most people are more interested in Pi and that interest may
motivate them to try to do it. If I had done Pi, everyone would probably just
look and nod, but to learn one has to do more.
It is quite remarkable that if you square any of the sqrt(2) fractions,
the numerator is always just one off from being exactly twice the denominator,
showing how close the approximation is.
It is a very simple continued fraction (C.F.) which repeats for ever.
This is a C.F. property for the Square Root of any number. (The repeating
sequence often is more than a single digit.) Some examples, I will put the
repeating part in ()'s
I included the last three above because it looks like the C.F. sequence for
sqrt(n**2+1) always has a repeating sequence of only one digit. At the moment,
for me, this is only a conjecture? I wonder if it is provable?
It is quite easy to recognize when one number is nearly twice another
(item 2 above) which makes 2 preferable to Pi or other Square Roots.
