22/7 is not considered as irrational number. It is a rational number. Here the confusion is regarding pi. The number pi is irrational number which is non terminating and non repeating. But for calculation puspose, it is asumed that pi is equal to 22/7. So remember pi is irrational but 22/7 is rational and they are appoximately equal.
