A. 12/7 = 1.714

B. 2π = 44/7

C. 22/7x14 = 44

D. 2√2 = 2.818

And if possible, could you explain what exact computation is? Thank you.

**Damon**, Friday, April 20, 2012 at 6:45pm44 is exactly 22/7 * 14 or 22*2

all the others are approximations where you could carry any number of decimal places after the decimal point. Try them with your calculator.
