Pi, an Irrational Number?

Given the query, why is Pi an irrational number when it is defined as
a fraction (circumference divided by diameter). There is a nice reply
located on Dr. Math (Math Forum) which basically indicates that Pi is
not a number that can be expressed as a fraction of two integers.
