## Thinking Mathematically (6th Edition)

An example of writing a rational number as decimal is shown below: The rational number $\frac{6}{11}$ can be written in decimal form as follows: 11\overset{0.54}{\overline{\left){\begin{align} & 6.000 \\ & \underline{5\,\,5} \\ & \,\,\,\,50 \\ & \underline{\,\,\,\,44} \\ & \,\,\,\,\,\,\,60 \\ \end{align}}\right.}} Hence, $\frac{6}{11}=0.\overline{54}$
