# What fraction is the closest to the actual value of pi?

One can define an infinite number of fractions to successively approximate pi, and get closer and closer to pi's value. There is no closest fraction to pi. No matter how close the fraction is to pi you can always find one that is closer.

### Can pi be written as a fraction?

22/7 I think is the closest fraction you will get. By definition it is irrational, and cannot be written as fraction of integer numbers. There are a few fractions that are close approximates though. Pi cannot be technically written as a fraction. However, a fraction that is a close approximation of pi is 22/7.

### What fraction is used for pi?

the fraction 22/7 is often used as an approximation for the value of pi. it is off from the actual value by about 0.04 percent (1 in 2500). This would be like measuring a football field and being off by about 1.5 inches on your measurement. The fraction 355/113 is amazingly close, better than 1 part in 10 million
