%N Denominators of 4 * Sum_{k=0..3*n-1} (-1)^k/(2*k+1) + (-1)^(n+1) * Sum_{k=0..2*n-1} (-1)^k/(2^(2*n-k-2) * (8*n-k-1) * binomial(8*n-k-2, 4*n+k)).

%C 1/(2^(2*n-1) * (8*n+1) * binomial(8*n, 4*n)) < 1/2^(2*n-2) * Integral_{x=0..1} (x^(4*n) * (1-x)^(4*n))/(1+x^2) dx < 1/(2^(2*n-2) * (8*n+1) * binomial(8*n, 4*n)). So b(n) = 4 * Sum_{k=0..3*n-1} (-1)^k/(2*k+1) + (-1)^(n+1) * Sum_{k=0..2*n-1} (-1)^k/(2^(2*n-k-2) * (8*n-k-1) * binomial(8*n-k-2, 4*n+k)) is nearly Pi. And the limit of b(n) is Pi.

%e 1/1260 < 1/2^0 * Integral_{x=0..1} (x^4 * (1-x)^4)/(1+x^2) dx < 1/630. So 1/1260 < 22/7 - Pi < 1/630.

%e 1/1750320 < 1/2^2 * Integral_{x=0..1} (x^8 * (1-x)^8)/(1+x^2) dx < 1/875160. So 1/1750320 < Pi - 47171/15015 < 1/875160.
