COMMENTS

This is an approximation to Pi. It is accurate to 0.00000849%.

355/113 is the third convergent of the continued fraction expansion of Pi (A001203). - Lekraj Beedassy, Jun 18 2003

In one of Ramanujan's papers, a note at the bottom states that "If the area of the circle be 140,000 square miles, then RD [RD = d/2 * Sqrt(355/113) = r*Sqrt(Pi), very nearly] is greater than the true length by about an inch."
