Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.21000(5.08282...) = 5082.8282...  10(5.08282...) = 50.8282...  1090=508250 then divide of the left side

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2this is a simple way to do it without having to resot to mathematical induction

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2spose you get: .abcabcabc then there are 3 numbers repeating; put the repeaters over 3 9s abc/999

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0wait where is 990 supposed to go? And what is final answer to 5.08282?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2rename: A=5.08282... 1000 A = 5082.8282...  10 A = 50.8282...  990 A= 508250 A= 5132/990

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2so A = A 5.08282.... = 5132/990

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2the final answer up top; just dont forget to add back in the 7 7+ 421/999 and reduce ;)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0wait so reduce and add 7 to the numerator or denominator or both haha

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2its just a 7, nothing special about it. 7 + fraction

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0alright haha can i put it in the calculator and also how do i show my work for this problem?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2depends on what level your spose to know; if this is for mathematical induction proofs, then youll have to go another route, otherwise id just do as i did

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2the 5 is throwing me off i think; lets avoid it and go for the deci instead A = .08282 1000A = 82.8282  10A = .8282  990A = 82 A = 82/990 let me see what the wolf makes of that

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0on both answers haha i thought i had the 1st one right then you said you might have got it wrong.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2the first one was good; it was the last one that the negative part was messing with me. 7 + frac = 7 + 421/999 (5 + frac) = (5 + 82/990 )

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0alright so for the first one i got 7414/999 cause the fraction is added by 7 is that correct?

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Ok so the answer is 7141/999 and that can't be reduced... i am just making sure.
