Do you mean how close is 22/7 to the value of pie? Pie is irrational and goes on forever after the decimal 3.141592654,,,,, 22/7 is close to pi 22/7 = 3.142857143

2. FoolForMath

$$\large \pi \neq \frac{22}7$$

3. srev98

thnx,but isnt it 3.14387???

4. FoolForMath

No, $$\pi$$ is irrational so it's non-terminating and non-recurring , all we can do is approximate to desired digits..

5. srev98

but specific 22\7

6. srev98

???

7. FoolForMath

22\7 is not a good approximation of pi in real mathematics, but works in grade school though.

8. meverett04

Not sure what you are asking 22/7 is not 3.14387.... but it is 3.14287 which is close to pi
