COURSE 3 LESSON 4-2 Equivalent Forms of Rational Numbers Write the repeating decimal 0.23 as a fraction in simplest form. Step 1 Let the variable n represent the given decimal. n = 0.23 Step 2 Since 2 digits repeat, multiply each side by 102, or 100. 100n = 23.23 100n = – n = – 99n = 99n = 23 Use the Subtraction Property of Equality. Simplify. Step 3 Subtract to eliminate the repeating part, 0.23. 4-2
