Answer:

#8/15=0.53333333..........#

Explanation:

#8/15=(8xx2)/(15xx2)=16/30#

Now multiplying numerator and denominator by #3333333#,

we get #8/15=16/30=(16xx3333333)/(30xx3333333)#

= #53333328/99999990#

As #99999990# is roughly #100000000#

#53333328/99999990~=0.53333328#

In fact as #99999990<100000000#,

#8/15>0.53333328#

In fact #8/15=0.53333333..........#
