Probability of being coprime (Posted on 2018-07-11) Difficulty: 3 of 5
What is the probability of two randomly chosen integers being coprime?

Bonus(d4): How does the result relate fo the density
of square-free numbers?

Interesting that the indicated solution, pi^2/6, is the inverse of the infinite sum 1/n^2 - the Basel problem, first proved by the incomparable master, Leonhard Euler.

Is there any deep significance in this?
Who knows?
In Euler's absence, any ideas, dear Perplexi?
