3. 0.1
4. 1
5. 10

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.

Similar questions to practice:

1/10 = .1
1/10.04 = close to .09
hence option c

i spent a solid five minutes trying to do something like (1+1*10^-4)/(10+4*10^-2)... then I revoked at the problem and wanted to bang my head against the table for missing the point of such an easy question

Official GMAT Prep1 question doesnt have the bracket.

How it's written there? If it's $$\frac{1+0.0001}{0.04+10}$$, then it's the same.
