What are we looking at, here?

Feel free to steal the code. I converted to javascript from the Original python code by @rjallain.


  1. 10000 random dots.
    2175 red dots.
    7824 blue dots

    Find the missing dot? Sorry.

    Actually, I think we're looking at the fraction pi/4 since the circle has area pi*r^2 and the square has area (2*r)^2 = 4*r^2. The circle takes up pi/4 of the total area, and pi/4*10000 = 7854 ish.

    Happy pi day!

  2. You're missing 1 dot. I only count 9999.

  3. There's about 150 covered up by the white rectangle, ironcates. Your counting skills ... FAIL.
