    Pi Approximation Day Chat

    Happy Pi Approximation Day! The chat is open!

    For those that don't understand, Pi appromation day lands on July 22 (22/7).

    22/7 = 3.1428...
    pi = 3.14159265358979...
    pie = 8.5397342...

    Therefore, 22/7 is close to pi. Also, for those that know what gamma functions are:

    (-.5)!^2

    A very close approximation to PI is 355/113. It is accurate to 6 decimal places. I believe it's the only pair of integers that are even close.
