a and b are whole positive integers, which makes the following identity true. What are the values of a and b? Thanks.

Pi/4 =8arctan(1/10) - arctan(a/b)

Pi/4 =8arctan(1/10) - arctan(a/b)

0.7853981634...... =0.79734921992... - arctan(a/b)

arctan(a/b) =0.79734921992  -  0.7853981634......

arctan(a/b) =0.0119510565318..........

Using "continued fraction" method:

a = 1,758,718

b=147,153,121
