Let x equal the repeating decimal you are trying to convert to a fraction. Examine the repeating decimal to find the repeating digit(s) Place the repeating digit(s) to the left of the decimal point.

4302017 Let's examine 0.111... to see how it works. This repeats 1 digit, so multiply it by 10 and write 1.111  0.111 = 1. That means 10x  x = 1 which is 9x = 1 so x = 1/9. Now let's look at 0.0101.... This repeats two digits so you do the same thing but now it is 100x  x = 1 or 99x = 1. Three digits would be a thousand and so on.
