 Question 319620: Express each given irrational numbers as a quotient of two numbers. Ex. a) 0.1111... b) 0.585858... c) -3.173173173.. d) 4.0121212...Answer by Alan3354(31538)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!Express each given irrational numbers as a quotient of two numbers. Ex. a) 0.1111... n = 0.11111... 10n = 1.1111... 1n = 00.1111.... ------------------ Subtract 9n = 1 n = 1/9 --------- b) 0.585858... ---------------------- c) -3.173173173.. Ignore the -3 for now n = 0.173173... 1000n = 173.173173... 1n = 0.173173... ------------------- Subtract 999n = 173 n = 173/999 --> -3 173/999 ------------------ d) 4.0121212...
