First, with the numerator, if you only have repeating numbers like .222 you write the repeating number as your numerator.
If you have a mixed recurring decimal like .16666 subtract
Notice the 1 does not repeat like the 6.
The non-repeating number from the repeating number. Make sure the repeating number has the same number of digits as the repeating number.
The denominator rules for non-repeating numbers, add a 0 ,and a 9 for repeating numbers.
Once you write the fraction you then reduce.
The video works the following example problems.
Convert .333 to a fraction
Convert .666 to a fraction
and the following repeating decimals, .1818, .4166, .2518, and even .70643889889.
