Find the smallest

Answer :

We know that if the denominator is in the form of , then we get terminating decimal digit, and it depends on the value of m or n. If we have m>n, then decimal digit terminates after m or if we have n > m, then digit terminates after n.


And, here we have


Our numerator must be 7, so we cancel out 7 from the denominator to get terminating decimal digits.


And,


as we know 5 > 2, and 52 > 22. So, to place 52 in denominator we get a smaller rational number in comparison to place 22.


Our smallest rational number by whichshould be multiplied, so that its decimal expansion terminates after two places of decimal
