    why doesn't it help? because you won't read it? It has step by step instructions on EXCACTLY how YOU can solve this problem. Would you prefer that I solved it and give you the answer?

    We do not give answers on OpenStudy. Also, what part of the decimal is repeating?

    And what steps of http://www.basic-mathematics.com/converting-repeating-decimals-to-fractions.html do you not understand? It is a very basic concept.

    @abdullahm As I suspected, the OP has no interest in contributing to this solution (my question above was not to suggest I WOULD give the answer - just to find out if that was what he wanted...)

    @MrNood I know that you would not give the answer and that you always engage the asker in his/her own question. So no worries (:
