SP#6: Unit K Concept 10: Writing a Repeating Decimal as a RationalNumber Using a Geometric Series

     In order to solve this problem correctly, the viewer should note the infinitely repeating part of the decimal consisting of three digits. In addition, they should memorize the infinite geometric series equation. Furthermore, the viewer should pay special attention to the addition of the non-repeating part of the decimal at the end of the problem. One thing that one should always keep in mind when solving this type of problem is to reduce the fraction whenever possible.
