#### Question

Express the following decimal in the form `p/q`: `4.bar7`

#### Solution

Let `x=4.bar7`

`x=4+0.bar7`

Let `y = 0.bar7=0.777...`

⇒ 10y = 7.777...

⇒ 10y = 7 + 0.777...

⇒ 10y = 7 + y

⇒ 10y - y = 7

⇒ 9y = 7

⇒ y = 7/9

`therefore0.bar7=7/9`

Therefore,

`x=4+7/9`

`x=(36+7)/9`

`x=43/9`

Hence, `4.bar7=43/9`

Is there an error in this question or solution?
