an approximation.

The exact value of pi is the ratio of the circumference of a circle to its diameter. It cannot be printed exactly in numbers.

It cannot. It can only show square roots which represent only a small proportion of irrational numbers.

No. An irrational number is one that does not repeat or finish, and a calculator cannot display millions of digits like an irrational number would have.

No. In fact, a number cannot be both rational and irrational; they're mutually exclusive concepts.

There is no "exact". It is infinite.

That is the correct spelling of "exact" (precise, accurate).

Exact numbers are defined numbers unlike measured numbers that often feature a fraction part. They are mostly integers found as counts of objects.

The exact numbers cannot be assured but as per the report to congress there were almost 610,042 homeless people in America in January 2013.
