Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.8Do 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

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1No, \( \pi \) is irrational so it's nonterminating and nonrecurring , all we can do is approximate to desired digits..
