If this is multiplication I do not think it would matter how the number are arranged they all equal the same thing...yes?
The dot over a number signifies that it is a repeater which would go on for ever, as when we endeavor to describe 1/3 decimally as 0.33333 . . . . (etc)
With a series of numbers we place the dot over the first and last, as with 0.97979797979 . . . (etc)
The remarkable feature being that a proper fraction divided by 9s e.g. 46/99 is exactly equal to the numerator with the repeater sign followed by the decimal.
