I am suppose to convert this to a fraction using paper and not a calculator...
.9595...
help :/
Hello,
let your number be x. The number of repeating decimals is 2. Thus multiply your number by 100 (2 zeros):
$\displaystyle \begin{array}{l}100x = 95.959595...\\ \ \ \ \ x=\ 0.959595...\end{array}$
Subtract and you'll get:
$\displaystyle 99x = 95~\implies~x=\frac{95}{99}$
