$1. \dot{ 3 } 7 \dot{ 1 }$
$\dfrac { 1370 } { 999 }$
Convert the repeating decimal number to a fraction
$\color{#FF6800}{ 1. \dot{ 3 } 7 \dot{ 1 } }$
$ $ Set the repeating decimal number to x $ $
$\color{#FF6800}{ x } = \color{#FF6800}{ 1. \dot{ 3 } 7 \dot{ 1 } }$
$\color{#FF6800}{ x } = \color{#FF6800}{ 1. \dot{ 3 } 7 \dot{ 1 } }$
$ $ Multiply both sides by an appropriate power of 10 to make two expressions with the same part of the prime number $ $
$\begin{cases} \color{#FF6800}{ 1000 } \color{#FF6800}{ x } = \color{#FF6800}{ 1371. \dot{ 3 } 7 \dot{ 1 } } \\ \color{#FF6800}{ 1 } \color{#FF6800}{ x } = \color{#FF6800}{ 1. \dot{ 3 } 7 \dot{ 1 } } \end{cases}$
$\begin{cases} \color{#FF6800}{ 1000 } \color{#FF6800}{ x } = \color{#FF6800}{ 1371. \dot{ 3 } 7 \dot{ 1 } } \\ \color{#FF6800}{ 1 } \color{#FF6800}{ x } = \color{#FF6800}{ 1. \dot{ 3 } 7 \dot{ 1 } } \end{cases}$
$ $ Since the prime number part of the right side of the two expressions is the same, only the integer part remains $ $
$\color{#FF6800}{ 999 } \color{#FF6800}{ x } = \color{#FF6800}{ 1370 }$
$\color{#FF6800}{ 999 } \color{#FF6800}{ x } = \color{#FF6800}{ 1370 }$
$ $ Divide both sides by the same number $ $
$\color{#FF6800}{ x } = \color{#FF6800}{ \dfrac { 1370 } { 999 } }$
