Countdown to Exams - Day 30 - Converting recurring decimals

Countdown to Exams - Day 30 - Converting recurring decimals

For day 30 we are looking at the more complex topic of turning a recurring decimal into a fraction. Here we take a look at converting simple recurring decimals into fractions with denominators of 9/99/999 etc. We then extend onto more complex recurring decimals. The best approach to these questions is to take an algebraic approach and multiply the decimal to get yourself into a position where the recurring element can be eliminated.

Important to remember that a recurring decimal is a decimal number that will have a pattern of number/s repeating infinitely. The whole point of converting the recurring decimal into a fraction is so that it is easier to calculate with.

Matt will show you how to convert recurring decimals into fractions in the video below.
