Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1If I call with q the rational number, we have: \[\Large 7.7 = \frac{{77}}{{10}} < q < \frac{{79}}{{10}} = 7.9\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1we can write this: \[7.7 = \frac{{77}}{{10}}\] and \[\frac{{79}}{{10}} = 7.9\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1so a rational number which is between 7.7 and 7.9, also checks this equivalent condition: \[\Large 7.7 < q < 7.9 \Rightarrow \frac{{77}}{{10}} < q < \frac{{79}}{{10}}\]
