0.1111111111111 = 1 / 9

0.0101010101  = 1 / 99

[1 /9  +  1 /99] = 12 / 99 = 4 / 33

I'm mortified.  It's bad enough that I made a mistake, but inexcusable that I gave mistaken advice.

10/99 is 0.10101010 not 0.01010101.  What's that ailment where you see things backwards?

Thanks for catching my mistake.
