Question:

The fractional value of 2.357 is

(a) 2355/1001

(b) 2379/997

(c) 2355/999

(d) none of these

Solution:

(C) $\frac{2355}{999}$

$2 . \overline{357}=2.0+0.357+0.000357+0.000000357+\ldots \infty$

$\Rightarrow 2 . \overline{357}=2+\left[\frac{357}{10^{3}}+\frac{357}{10^{6}}+\frac{357}{10^{9}}+\ldots \infty\right]$

$\Rightarrow 2 . \overline{357}=2+\frac{\frac{357}{10^{3}}}{1-\frac{1}{10^{2}}}$

$\Rightarrow 2 . \overline{357}=2+\frac{357}{999}$

$\Rightarrow 2 . \overline{357}=\frac{2355}{999}$
