OMG. I totally hate this site. Every day its something new that doesn't make any sense. Why don't you guys come up with some real brain teasers or copy some from a book or something. This is retarded. It does not equal pi. Thats as good as saying:
------ = III because we'll just round that one down pretty hard core to make it work
---- = II because were just gonna truncate that .75 so that this works.
this is dumb; we cant just go ahead and round down or truncate whenever we feel like it just to make a sorry attempt at a brain teaser. Common, just try a little bit. Just a little.

To be anal, I must point out that this only works to two digits of Pi. As soon as you hit 3 digits, the answer is wrong.
22 / 7 ~=
He put that the answer is only correct to two decimal places.

**A couple of artistic liberties: ignore that the division line is under the "1", and assume that the changed stick can be broken in half. Remember that division occurs before subtraction. So you have 21/7 - 1 = 2.

Matchstick Equation - Back to the Matchstick Puzzles
Move one matchstick to get the correct equation.
Edit: the answer is correct only to 2 decimal digits (since equals sign has to be kept).Spoiler for Solution
Very simple....remove the last line from XX||| (i.e 23) & it will be XX|| (i.e 22). Place it the other side on top of the 2 lines & it will be pie(symbolically) i.e 22/7

that is the way i thought of it also.
How about a non-equal sign?
