## A way for computing PiDescription of the plugin greekpi.dll
Greekpi is a plugin which computes Pi with the Monte Carlo method. Although not very useful in real life (206 billion of digits of Pi are known), it is a good academic example. The idea is to generate two random numbers between 0 and 1, which are considered as coordinates in the plane. Let’s call these two coordinates x and y. Now the plugin checks if the point (x,y) lies within a circle of radius 1. To do this square x and y, sum them together and check if the result is less than one. If the point (x,y) lies in the circle, increment the counter Sum by one.
