I'm just guessing, but I would say \( \frac{11}{11}=\frac{10}{11} + \frac{1}{11} = 0.\overline{90} + 0.\overline{09} = 0.\overline{99} \).

Mathematically, I don't see how this is different from any other fraction \(\frac{p}{q}\) where \(p=q\), but I think this is more a question of "aesthetics". Please tell me why or why not this is correct, I'm here to learn!

let us say that E= 0.99999999.......
so, 10E = 9.99999999.........
now, 10E - E = 9.9999999999...... - 0.9999999999......
hence, 9E=9
E= 1
this means that any fraction in the form p/q with p = q would be equal to 0.9999999......

It is not the question you are thinking about. There are unlimited 9s and you have to present it in the form of fraction.

Example:- If there is \(0.7777777777......\), it would be represented as \(\frac{7}{9}\).

\(0.99999999E = \frac {99999999E}{100000000}\).

As far as I know, 0,99999999... is equal to 0,(9)= (9-0) / 9 = 1 , so every fraction p/q with p=q expresses 0,9999... .
