There are an infinite set of numbers are close to any number. Nothing connects these approximations other than closeness to the chosen target, and human aesthetics.

I hope this illustrates that the number of symbols in an approximation and the logarithm of the absolute error are roughly proportional when there is no connection between the form of the approximation and the targeted number. But when there is a connection, an exact formula can be written with a finite number of symbols.
