Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0It's a reasonable estimate for many uses but is not exact; as radar said, pi is irrational and cannot be expressed (exactly) as a fraction.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Pi is an irrational number and cannot be expressed as a fraction, however there have been fractional approximations of Pi who have been discovered by various mathematicians, they include: 22/7 (The most common) 223/71 (correct upto two decimal places) 339/108 (which is also approximately correct up to two decimal places if rounded off) 62832/20000 ( a really approximate fraction) and there might be others too, which i might not be aware of, or studied yet.
