## P/q?

The problem states:

Express 5.2727... as a rational number in the form of p/q where p and q are positive integers with no common factors.

The only way I know how to solve is to keep plugging number in the calculator until I find that number...I found the answer to be 61 for p and 11 for q, but I don't actually know how to do it.

Can you explain this to me?
