A Pi Anagram

pigraphic

Here is an interesting numerical anagram involving π.

The first 16 digits of π can be rearranged into a fraction so that the fraction is approximately equal to π. This is accurate to 12 digits.

The first 16 digits of π: 3.141592653589793

After the rearrangement:

\frac{833,719}{265,345+(9-5)\times9\times1}=3.14159265358

I am still searching for larger examples though I still have no luck. Perhaps, I need to write a program for it.
