    first, let x = 0.13131313.... now multiply by 100 to both sides, what u get

    ok, good... so, if given 2 equations : 100x = 13.13131313.... and x = 0.13131313 .... subtract of both, 1st equation - 2nd equation, what u get

    it means, left side - left side = right side - right side 100x - x = 13.131313... - 0.13131313... , right ?

    RadEn has a great proof; after about a hundred of these you see a pattern 0.abc... repeats abc then; abc/999 is the fraction the number of 9s in the denominator is the number of positions that are repeated

    simplied again... 99x = 13 solve for x, just dividing by 99 to both sides u will get the answr
