Hi All,
Having your fraction-to-decimal conversions memorized before taking the GMAT can lead to a few time-saving shortcuts on Test Day. The ability to convert data from one 'format' to 'another' can be quite valuable in general and can help to make certain questions easier to deal with overall.
For this question, it would help to know what 1/6, 1/7, 1/8, 1/9 and 1/11 are as decimals. We only have to check fractions until we find the match, then we'll be done.
Knowing that 1/11 = .090909... means that 3/11 = .272727....and we're done.
Final Answer:
GMAT assassins aren't born, they're made,
