Calculate Pi by throwing Frozen Hotdogs !

Did you know you can Calculate Pi by throwing Frozen Hotdogs !

Neither did I until recently.

But better than that is that you don’t need to go to the freezer to get the Hotdogs, you can do it all in Excel.

I recently wrote a post detailing how to develop a model to calculate Pi by simulating throwing hotdogs using Excel.


You can read about the Excel techniques used to make this simulation here: http://www.excelhero.com/blog/2014/11/calculate-pi-by-throwing-hotdogs.html
