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

No, \( \pi \) is irrational so it's nonterminating and nonrecurring , all we can do is approximate to desired digits..

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

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