0.14242424242........etc.  Take the reciprocal of it:

7.021276595744680851063829787234 - 7 Take the reciprocal of the fraction:

47 - This is the numerator.

47 x 7.021276595744680851063829787234

330 - This is the denominator: So the fraction is:

47 / 330

Here's my method, QS

 

Forget the decimal   and write the non-repeating and repeating parts ⇒   142

 

(1) Subtract  the non-repeating part  from this  =   142  - 1   =   141

 

(2) Write this over an integer that has the same number of leading  9's as digits in the the repeating part  and the same number of 0's  as digits in the non-repeating part ⇒  990

 

So  we have

 

141  / 990    =   47 / 330

 

 

cool cool cool
