PLEASE HELP!

I am studying for my MTSE exam 2015.

Can you please express \(0.99999999...............\) in the form of fraction \((\frac{p}{q})\)

@Krishna Ar Yes, how do you not know this? @ashwin korade Sharky Kesa · 3 years, 1 month ago

@Sharky Kesa 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 \(\frac{7}{9}\). Ashwin Korade · 3 years, 1 month ago

@Ashwin Korade \(\frac {1}{1}\), if you let \(\frac {1}{\infty}\) equal zero. Sharky Kesa · 3 years, 1 month ago

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! Nicolas Bryenton · 2 years, 12 months ago

\(0.99999999E = \frac {99999999E}{100000000}\). Sharky Kesa · 3 years, 1 month ago

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...... Sriram Venkatesan · 3 years ago

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... . Adrian Stefan · 3 years, 1 month ago
