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

with walker for E

1+0.0001/0.04+10 --> 1+1/400+10 --> (400+1+4000)/400 --> 4401/400

approx. 11

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

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