Q. 2 A4.4( 16 Votes )

# Express each of the following decimals in the rational form .

let x =

x = 0.99999….. -(i)

Here the periodicity of the decimal is one

So, we multiply both sides of (i) by 10 and we get

10x = 9.999…-(ii)

Subtract (i) from (ii)

10x = 9.999….

x = 0.999…

10x - x = 9.999... - 0.999...

9x = 9.0

x = 1

Hence = 1
