$$Let x =7.58\overline{3}$$
$$Then 10x = 75.83\overline{3}$$
10x-x =9x = 68.25
$$x=\frac{68.25}{9}=\frac{273}{9*4}=\frac{91}{12}$$

IMO E

Check this post first: https://www.veritasprep.com/blog/2014/0 ... fractions/

$$7.58 \overline{3} = x$$

$$100x = 758. \overline{3}$$

$$1000x = 7583. \overline{3}$$

$$900x = 6825$$

$$x = \frac{6825}{900} = \frac{91}{12}$$

Answer (E)
