Firstly, identify the recurring portion of the decimal. In this case, it is "13"
set up an equation "x=0.2131313
You need to place the repeating section to the left of the decimal point. To do this, you will need to multiply by 1000. Thus, the above equation becomes: 1000x= 213.131313
now, you need to place the repeating portion to the right off the decimal point. To do this, you need to multiply by 10. This gives you: 10X=2.131313
you have 2 simeltaneous equations now. subtract the second one from the first. this gives you: 1000x-10x = 213.131313-2.131313
990x= 210
X= 210/990
X=21/99
X= 7/33
