**Almost pi ......**

What is the solution to:

[tex]\mbox{ $\frac{1}{2}$}\ \mbox{\Huge e}^{\ \frac{1}{2}X^2}\ -\ 2\ \mbox{\Huge e}^{\ 2X^{1/2}}\ =\ \left(\frac{1}{2} \right)^2}[/tex]

Answer: x = 3.1415935362596164657060129064942...

Almost pi, the difference is only 2.8 10

^{-7}.

Now, is this a coincidence or is there an explanation?

Regards, Hans
