Main Question or Discussion Point
the notation e made its first appearance in a letter Euler wrote to Goldbach in 1731. He made various discoveries regarding e in the following years, but it was not until 1748 when Euler published Introductio in Analysin infinitorum that he gave a full treatment of the ideas surrounding e.
Euler gave an approximation for e to 18 decimal places
e = 2.718281828459045235
Ofcourse I was insinuating no such thing. Twas just a joke.Tide said:
