    Hope you all had a happy pie day. In order to arrive at 3.141592653 and so on what number is being divided by what other number. It is not 22/7. Just asking for a friend.

      Pi (not pie) is an irrational number. Which means that it can only be approximately indicated as a fraction such as 22/7. Advanced mathematical techniques and massive computational resources have calculated the value of pi to around 13 trillion digits. There’s no end to it.
