D. Write Decimals as Fractions ALGEBRA Write simplest form. as a mixed number in Assign a variable to the value

. Let N = 2.777... . Then perform operations on N to determine its fractional value. Write Decimals as Fractions N 10(N) = 2.777...

= 10(2.777...) Multiply each side by 10 because 1 digit repeats. 10N = 27.777... Multiplying by 10 moves the decimal point 1 place to the right.

__ 25 9 Answer: N = 2.777... Subtract N = 0.777... to eliminate the repeating

part. N = Divide each side by 9. 9N = 25 Simplify. __ Write 0.45 as a fraction in simplest form.
