Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1what about writing this as a fraction: \[.5124124124124\cdots\] So first let \[x=.5124124124124\cdots\] So \[10000x=5124.124124124124 \cdots \] So if we take the 2nd equation10*1st equation we get \[10000x10x=5124.124124\cdots 5.124124124124 \cdots \] \[9990x=51245\] \[9990x=5119\] so this means \[x=\frac{5119}{9990}\] But remember what we called x? => \[\frac{5119}{9990}=.5124124124124\cdots\]
