    What do you mean by bar? Can you draw it real quick?

    When 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.

    The 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|

    Correct! @Spring98 :) I wish I knew about this bar when I was younger. Can't believe I would actually write out like thirteen 3's ugh.
