 Closest to pi (Posted on 2005-09-25)
As you know, the value of pi with some decimals is 3.141592653589...

Write an expression using all digits (0-9) once each, to achieve the closest value to pi. The digits must be in the order 1, 2, 3, 4, ...8, 9, 0. You may also use as many parentheses, +, -, /, and *, as you wish, but only these symbols.

As an example: 123/45 - 6/7 + 8/9 + 0 = 2.765079... gives a difference of approximately 0.376.

You may post the difference or the approximation you achieve in the subject of your comment.

12/3-((4-5)*6)/(7*(8-9)+0) = <table border="0" cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0" width="75" style=""><col width="75"><tbody><tr height="13"><td height="13" align="right" width="75" x:num="3.142857142857143">3.14285714</td></tr></tbody></table>
