Answer is B with [b]eswarchethu135 on this one.
[/b]

Bring 0.5959 in the fraction form of 5959/10000 = 59x.

Next is bring down 59 in the denominator i.e 5959/10000x59 = x

After dividing you get 101/10000 = x

Thus 0.0101 is the answer in decimal form

A. 0.01
B. 0.0101
C. 0.11
D. 0.111
E. 1.01


Simplifying, we have:

x = 0.5959/59

x = 0.59/59 + 0.0059/59

x = 0.01 + 0.0001

x = 0.0101

Answer: B

we can write 0.5959 as \(\frac{5959}{10000}\)
and 5959 as \((59*100)+59\)
After factorizing 59, we will have: \(\frac{59(100+1)}{10000}\)

Here is the equation:
\(\frac{59(100+1)}{10000}=59x\)

canceling out 59, we get the value of x as:

\(x=101/10000\)


\(x=0.0101\)
