Let, \(x = 0.4232323…\)

i.e. \(10x = 4 +0.232323…\)

Let, \(a = 0.232323...\)
i.e. \(100a = 23+0.232323...\)
i.e. \(100a = 23+a\)
i.e. \(99a = 23\)
i.e. \(a = \frac{23}{99}\)


i.e. \(10x = 4 +\frac{23}{99}\)

i.e. \(x = \frac{(423-4)}{990} = = \frac{419}{990}\)

Answer: Option E

My reasoning:

\(0.4232323... = (4.23232323...) * 10^{-1}\)

Continuing on:

\((4 + 0.23232323) * 10^{-1}\)

A prime number divided by 9 is that number repeating hence: \(0.232323.. = \frac{23}{99}\)

\(\frac{4}{10} + \frac{23}{990}\)

= \(\frac{419}{990}\)
