  1. let x = .151515...
    times 100
    100x = 15.151515...
    subtract them:
    notice the decimals line up and will subtract to get zeros
    99x = 15
    x = 15/99 = 5/33

    check with your calculator by dividing 5 by 33

  2. Reiny is correct but in the part where he says "subtract them" he means subtract 100 by 0.151515 which will equal 99. so thats where he got 99 from. then 99 x 0.151515 will equal 15. Try dividing 15 by 99... did you get 0.151515...? so 15/99 in fraction form is also 5/33. to check if 0.151515 = 5/33 divide 5 by 33. anyway your final answer is 5/33

    hope this cleared it up a bit, if not read it again carefully until you get it. :)

  3. For number 10 -

    turn 0.57 into a fraction. So 0.57 into a fraction is obviously 57/100, now since its is a fraction it is rational.
