Explanation

By dividing 4 by 11, you get the decimal form D = 0.363636…, where the sequence of two digits “36” repeats without end. Continuing the repeating pattern, you see that the 1st digit, the 3rd digit, the 5th digit, and every subsequent odd-numbered digit to the right of the decimal point is 3.

Therefore, Quantity A, the 25th digit to the right of the decimal point, is 3. Since Quantity A is 3 and Quantity B is 4, the correct answer is Choice B.

Dividing we get 0.3636....3 is in the odd place. 25th place is odd. So B is the answer Re: D is the decimal form of the fraction 4/11   [#permalink] 24 Feb 2018, 18:50
