COMMENTS

"6/Pi^2 is the probability that two randomly selected numbers will be coprime and also the probability that a randomly selected integer is 'squarefree.'" C. Pickover.
6/Pi^2 = Product_{k = 1..infinity} (11/ithprime(k)^2) = Sum_{k = 1..infinity} mu(k)/k^2.  Vladeta Jovovic, May 18 2001
In fact, the probability that any k randomly selected numbers will be coprimes is Sum {1..inf) 1/n^k.  Robert G. Wilson v
6/Pi^2 is also the diameter of a circle whose circumference equals the ratio of volume of a cuboid to the inscribed ellipsoid. 6/Pi^2 is also the diameter of a circle whose circumference equals the ratio of surface area of a cube to the inscribed sphere.  Omar E. Pol, Oct 08 2011
6/(Pi^2 * n^2) is the probability that two randomly selected positive integers will have a greatest common divisor equal to n, n >= 1.  Geoffrey Critzer, May 28 2013
