## Finding Pi

pi = 4 x (2x4x4x6x6x8x8x10x10x12x12... / 3x3x5x5x7x7x9x9x11x11x13...)

pi = 4 x (1 - 1/3 + 1/5 - 1/7 + 1/9 - 1/11 + 1/13 ...)

Here is the Number Pi to 1,000 decimal spaces.

## Pi Approximated as a Fraction

The number pi is a mathematical constant. It is defined as the ratio of a circle's circumference to its diameter. It is represented by the Greek letter 𝜋 and its approximation to eleven significant digits is 3.1415926535 (not rounding up to 3.1415926536 though adding an eleventh decimal digit yields 3.14159265358).

Since it is an irrational number, it cannot be expressed as an exact fraction. It's decimal representation never ends and never settles into a permanently repeating pattern.

The fraction 22/7 is commonly used, but that yields approximately 3.1429, which is too high. The fraction 223/71 yields 3.1408, which is too low.

The fraction 355/113 is approximately 3.1415929, which matches the first seven significant digits of the number pi.
