If any single digit after a decimal is repeating, the fraction is that number over 9.

0.1111111 = 1/9

0.222222 = 2/9

0.333333 = 3/9 (or 1/3)

0.444444 = 4/9

And so on. So

1.222222 = 1 and 2/9, or 11/9.

Let x = 1.2222222222222...

Then 10x = 12.2222222222...

Subtract the above equations.

9x = 11

Divide by 9.

x = 11/9
