ok so, to find a fraction equivalent, of say example we put therefore the repeating group is 123 and is 3 digits long so we multiply by ... hence you get So on that basis, how could you do the same for say, 0.985 498 549 854.... thanks

Here it would be 0.9854 repeating to give This does not simplify

I don't think I would have seen that this was 0.9854 9854 9854... ! I was wondering what repeated!
Thanks - i was looking at it as two lots of repetitions, ie 98 and 54 rather than 9854 together.
