Sorry, i had already post a thread about this, but it was worng. As Dextercioby said,(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

[tex] \lim_{n\rightarrow \infty}\left( \frac{1}{n}\cdot\sum_{i=1}^{n}\sqrt{1-\frac{i^{2}}{n^{2}}}\right)= \frac{\pi}{4} [/tex]

So, how do I show this. Can I do it with an integral (as Dextercioby did)?

This limit came out when I was triyng to derive the formula of the surface area of a sphere in the way Archimedes did.
