What is the 99th digit after the decimal point in the decimal expansion of 2/9 + 3/11?

A. 1
B. 2
C. 4
D. 7
E. 9


\(\frac{2}{9} + \frac{3}{11}=\frac{22}{99} + \frac{27}{99}=\frac{49}{99}=0.494949...\). So, 99th (odd placed after the decimal) digit will be 4.

Answer: C.

\(\frac{2}{9} = 0.222222222...........2\)

\(\frac{3}{11}= 0.272727.............. 27\)

Addition (Does not have carries)

\(\frac{2}{9} + \frac{3}{11} = 0.4949494949....... 49\)

Odd's have 4

99th would have 4

Answer = C

\(\frac{2}{9}\) = 0.22222.... ==> 99th digit is 2

\(\frac{3}{11}\) = 0.27272727.... ==> Every odd digit is 2. So, 99th digit will be 2.

2 +2 = 4 ( Ans C)

\(\frac{2}{9}\) + \(\frac{3}{11}\) = \(\frac{49}{99}\)

\(\frac{49}{99}\) = 0.49494949..............

so the digits are getting repeated in order of two digits 49

so the 99 th digit is 4

correct answer - C

We need 99th digit after the decimal point of 0.494949...

The first digit is 4, the second digit is 9, the third digit is 4 again, the fourth digit is 9 again, ... 99th (odd placed after the decimal) digit will be 4.

B. 2
C. 4
D. 7
E. 9



2/9 + 3/11 = 22/99 + 27/99 = 49/99 = 0.494949….

SInce each odd-positioned digit to the right of the decimal point has a value of 4, the 99th digit is 4.

Alternate Solution:

We see that 2/9 = 0.222… and 3/11 = 0.272727…

If we add the two decimal expressions, we see that we obtain 0.494949… Since all the odd-positioned digit to the right of the decimal point has a value of of 4, the 99th digit is 4.

Answer: C
