You could do the long way 1.0001/10.04 but id just ignore the .0001 and .04 since they are very small when compared with 1 and 10.

essentially its just 1/10 so .1

I'd never interpret the above expression as (1+0.0001)/(0.04+10). with the given problem description, I'd definitely say E. If (1+0.0001)/(0.04+10), then it's a different story. the ratio is approximately equal to 1/10 = 0.1 -> C

(1+0.0001)/(0.04+10)

The value of the expression above is closet to which of the following?

A. 0.0001
B. 0.001
C. 0.1
D. 1
E. 10

Notice that we need approximate value of the fraction.

Now, the nominator is very close to 1 and the denominator is very close to 10, hence the value of the fraction is very close to 1/10=0.1.

Answer: C.
