#pi = 8^(0.72544666)-1/(0.72544666) ~~ 3.1415928#

#### Explanation:

Suppose:

#t = log_n(pi+1/(log_n(pi+1/(log_n(pi+...)))))=log_n(pi+1/t)#

Then:

#n^t = pi+1/t#

So:

#pi = n^t-1/t#

In our example, we are told that

So:

#pi = 8^(0.72544666)-1/(0.72544666)#

#~~ 4.5200539-1.3784611 = 3.1415928#
