A number 'x' was found to be represented in the simplest pq form. The decimal expansion of this number was found to be 5.3333333333..... .The value of p−q is ___
We have x=5.3333333...... ------ (i) Therefore, 10x=53.33333333.... ---- (ii) Subtracting (i) from (ii), we get, 10x−x=48 i.e. x=489=163 So, p−q=13
1.666666...... is a rational number and can be expressed in pq form where p and q are integers. Then the value of p+q is
The numbers which have a non-terminating and non-repeating decimal expansion and cannot be represented in the form of pq ( q is not equal to '0') are known as ___ numbers.
