# Taylor Series Pi and e

**Objective:**

- You will use loops to determine the approximations of mathematical constants
- You will implement the Taylor series approximation of Pi (~3.1415...)
- You will implement the Taylor series approximation of e (~2.718...)

**Resources:**

**Directions:**

- Prompt the user for a number N (this will be how many terms you will sum in your approximation)
- Use a while loop to iterate N times (you will need a loop counter -- N is
**not**your loop counter) - Use several variables to create the summation for Pi
- Print out Pi
- Repeat the above steps for approximating
**e**
