    in form of fraction

    this is my question,
    write in form of fraction, simplest form.

    ignore the ?'s, i need them there for the dots to stay above the numbers

    ? . .
    0.35

    is this it?
    ? . . ?????????? . .
    0.35 x 100= 35.35
    ? . . ?????? . .
    0.35 x 1= 0.35

    35.35 - 0.35= 35

    35 x 99= 35 = 35 over 99, can't remember how to put it as a fraction

    would this be right??

    HI

    oops , i miss the 2 dots above . This is a recurring decimal , ie 0.353535353535...

    let x=0.3535353535... ---- 1

    100x=35.35353535... ------ 2

    2-1 99x=35

    x=35/99

    This cant be simplified further .
