# [SciPy-user] Can SciPy compute ln(640320**3 + 744)/163**.5 to 30 places?

```Actually if you use floats instead of int is the expression you get

>>> print '%1.32f' % (log(640320.**3. + 744.)/163.**.5)
3.14159265358979311599796346854419
>>> print '%1.32f' % (pi)
3.14159265358979311599796346854419
>>>

Cheers
