Do you mean, what is the value of 0.55555...?

Call it x.

Then 10x = 5.5555...

Now subtract x from 10x

10x - x = 5.55555... - 0.55555...

9x = 5

x = 5/9

Done.

It is: 5/33 = 0.151515 .... 15 repeating

let x=.5 repeating. because .5 repeating has one digit repeating, mulitply each side of x=.5 repeating by 10 to the first power, or 10. then 10x=5.55 repeating. subtract one x from 10x, so since each x is .5 repeating, 5.55 repeating minus .5 repeating is 5. that means 9x=5. then its x=9/5, which is your answer. if possible, simplify. so the answer is .5555 repeating is equivalent to the fraction 9/5. Doesn't 9/5 = 1.8? I mean if you use your calculator to do the check the math it doesn't make sense that a top-heavy fraction can be less than one, does it not?

It is 26.666... (repeating) and 33.333... (repeating).

It is: 5/9
