let x = .060606060606...

then 100x=6.06060606.....

x=0.0606060606

I lined them up because now I am going to subtract

100x-x    = 6          all the other numbers cancel out

99x     =6

x  = 6/99 = 2/33

There you go

So insert       2/33

$${\frac{{\mathtt{2}}}{{\mathtt{33}}}} = {\mathtt{0.060\: \!606\: \!060\: \!606\: \!060\: \!6}}$$       the numbers really keep going :)

I cannot find the function to do a repeating number nut you can do that a bunch of times so the error will be to miniscule for it t make a difference in your answer
