This is a repeating decimal which can be written as 4.
57, and there is a special formula to determine the fraction
The repeated piece 57 has a length of 2
Therefore, we setup two equations.
Equation 1: x = 4.57
Equation 2: 100x = 10
^{2} 100x 4.57 → 100x = 100 x 4.57 → 100x = 457
Therefore, we have 100x  x = 457  4.57
99x = 457
Divide each side of the equation by 99
