### Abstract

In the paper new explicit formulae for the prime counting function π are proposed and proved. They depend on arbitrary positive arithmetic function which satisfies certain condition. As a particular case a formula for π depending on Euler’s function φ is obtained. To the author’s best knowledge such kind of formulae are proposed for the first time in the mathematical literature.
