Easy way to remember 1/11 till 10/11 is:

1/11 --> The repeating pattern is 10-1=09 so 0.09090909
2/11 --> The repeating pattern is 20-2=18 so 0.18181818
3/11 --> The repeating pattern is 30-3=27 so 0.27272727
...
10/11 --> The repeating pattern is 100-10=90 so 0.90909090


Wow, this is amazing.
Although, I did it in the same way, Bunuel did or TTP does, this approach is interesting.
Thanks for sharing this different approach.

Another way of solving this one=>
6/11=> multiply 9 to both he numerator and denominator => 54/99
hence the decimal expansion would be 0.54545454545454
Clearly the 57th digit is 5=> Smash that C

Why did we write 6/11 as 54/99 => if denominator and numerator have same number of digits and if the denominator can be written as 10^n-1 ie 9,99,999,9999 etc then we need not carry any division process . The result would be given by the numerator

E.g => 69/99 = 0.69696969...
3/9=0.33333...
158/999=0.158158158...


Thanks for sharing this. It's interesting and have never seen this approach before.
There was another post that said, multiply numerator and denominator by 9 and you will get the answer - but I could NOT grasp, exactly "how"?
Giving 3 examples besides the one we are trying to solve was really helpful and enabled me to grasp, what an earlier post was saying.
Although, I did it using the Bunuel has done, In future I would prefer this.
