    Okay, so what you're supposed to do is this: Let x = 0.123333...

    Then multiply both sides of that by 100 to get 100x = 12.3333...

    Then take x = 0.123333.... and multiply both sides by 1000, so you have 1000x = 123.3333....

    Then subtract 1000x - 100x in the following manner: 1000x = 123.3333... -100x = 12.3333... ____________________ 900x = 111.0000...

    You can basically re-write it simply as 900x = 111 Then you continue solving for x by dividing both sides by 900.

    @mia454 Take 900x = 111 Divide both sides by 900. You should end up with a fraction afterwards.

    You should have gotten x = 111/900
