# Irrational Digits Walk

Requires a Wolfram Notebook System

Interact on desktop, mobile and cloud with the free Wolfram Player or other Wolfram Language products.

Take a irrational digit walk by stepping in the direction given by each successive digit as represented in a chosen base. Compare your digit walk against a different irrational number or against the same number with different direction steps assigned to each digit. The area of the smallest enclosing rectangle for each walk is also presented. For paths with less than 100 steps the vertices along the path can be labeled with each successive digit. For fun, try to find the smallest or largest rectangle or rectangular prism that encloses the 2D or 3D digit walk for a particular irrational number.
