Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0When it has a bar over it, that means that the one continues. So the actual decimal is 0.11111111111. To find the answer, divide all the rational numbers. I'll do A for example. A. 1/11 (1 divided by 11) which is .09090909. It's close, but not the answer. Now, try the others.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0The actual decimal is impossible to write out as it is infinite, so it is represented with a bar on top of the repeating value. \[0.03\]dw:1442276010887:dw
