As in: 2.16666666 (etc.) What is it as a fraction? Thank you xD

**Answer 1**

Call 2.16666666 (etc.) x

x = 2.16666666 (etc.)

10x = 21.666666 (etc.)

100x = 216.666666 (etc.)

100x – 10x = 216.666666 (etc.) – 21.666666 (etc.)

You do this so that the .6666666 (etc.) cancel out.

100x – 10x = 216.666666 (etc.) – 21.666666 (etc.) = 195

90x = 195

x = 195/90

Cancel down = 13/6

Can also be written as 2 1/6 (2 and one sixths)

I would stick with 13/6 (13 over 6) because it’s a fraction.

**Answer 2**

2 1/6

or 13/6 as an improper fraction.

How I get that ?

I know 1/4 is .25 so 1/4 is too big.

1/5 = .20

when I lugged 1/3 in to calculator I go the .16666 repeating.
