Hi everyone,(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I need to prove that any number with a repeating block of digits is a rational number. Someone told me I should first find a method of constructing a rational number in the form a/b from a number with repeating blocks of digits (and to do it with very 'easy' numbers first). I'm still stumped though.

For example, given 0.33333..., how do I show that it equals 1/3?
