Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Do you want to express 6.25252525..........as P/Q, where P and Q are coprimes?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0yes i do want to express it like that... and it just shows it like that on my paper p/q as a fraction.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1First I say let x = 6.252525........... Now I multiply both sides by 10^4

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1(10^4)x=62525.2525...

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0On my homework it says to multiply it by a hundred or that is what my teacher told me.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Say at first you multiply by 100, then multiply by 10 In my problem I am first multiplying by 10000, and then by 1000

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Any way, since I see you are already familiar with the procedure. I am stating it once again, in a better way, so that you understand the thing better.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I am not sure how to multiply it by a 100 like i don't know how to solve it.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1STEP 1. Assume x = (the number given to you)

2bornot2b

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1So now you have two equations (Not m must be lesser than n)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Subtract the second equation from the first

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Now you will get a good equation which looks like P/Q

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1So I have expressed x as P/Q, and x is equal to 6.2525...

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0So the last part is p/q? And yes for the most part i did.

2bornot2b

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Of course, the last part is p/q

2bornot2b

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1However, you must simplify that, to get the actual p and q

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0alright just making sure... so it does not need to be reduced

2bornot2b

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Yes, you need to reduce ofcourse

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1You can't leave it there. I just expressed x equal to some p/q. But as you can see, p and q has common factors. So you need to cancel and come to a point, where p and q can't be cancelled any further

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Take a look at page 14 (example 5) of this book http://books.google.co.in/books?id=SnvBeodeTDcC&printsec=frontcover&source=gbs_ge_summary_r&cad=0#v=onepage&q&f=false
