    C = pi/d

    Cirucumference = pi/diamete (talking about circle here by the way)

    therefore pi = Circumference/Diameter

    For any circle always give you the same number....

    I guess that is as absolute as you can get.....all of them simplified down will give you as another member said 22/7. Fractions are shiny....always more accurate than a decimal in these cases

    A sine is a circle OK, OK, so is a cosine... but I digress.
