Robo's Pi Day Problem 2016!

Well, it's just about that time of year! Pi day is quickly approaching. Though I don't find the exact merit of eating pie on Pi day, I do love good maths! So on my office window, I posted the following problem!

Obviously, I may not be able to get the pie to you readers, but still a fun little challenge!

Happy math!


The following is a possible way to attack the problem using partial fractions!
