**1. Homework Statement**

Self-given problem; I want to prove that Gamma (1/4) is approxiamately equal to 3.625, but can't seem to integrate it properly...

Gamma(z) = (integral between infinity and 0) (t^z-1)(e^-t) dt

(http://www.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gamma_function)

**2. Homework Equations**

Gamma(n+1) = n Gamma (n)

**3. The Attempt at a Solution**

Tried an integration by substitution and an integration by parts, and no luck!

Thanks for your help!
