@Mehdi Balti

let \(F=0.8418181818...\)

so \(100F=84.18181818...\)

\( \implies 100F-F=(84.18181818...)-(0.8418181818...) \implies 99F=83.34 \implies F=\frac{8334}{9900}=\frac{463}{550}\)

\(550-463=87\) so the answer is \(d-87\) Kaito Einstein · 2 years ago

\(F = 0.84\dot{1}\dot{8} = 0.84 + \dfrac{18}{9900} = \dfrac{0.84\times 9900+18}{9900} = \dfrac{8316+18}{9900} = \dfrac{8334}{9900} = \dfrac{463}{550}\)

\(\Rightarrow 550 - 463 = \boxed{87}\) Chew-Seong Cheong · 2 years ago
