What is \(0.4\overline8 + 0.\overline{37}\)? Express your answer as a common fraction in lowest terms.

 

The answer is not 13/15, I thought it was though

let x = .4888888

then 10 x = 4.888888....

and 100x = 48.8888888....

 

100x - 10x   =      48.88888  ...    - 4.88888

             90x  =     44

                  x  = 44/90    is the first fraction      can you do the second one....and then do the subtraction?
