Answer:

#3/11 = (3*9)/(11*9) = 27/99 = 0.27272727... = 0.dot(2)dot(7)#

Explanation:

If you can find a multiplier for the numerator and denominator that makes the denominator #1# short of a power of #10#, then the numerator will give you the pattern repeated in the decimal.

For example #3/7 = (3*142857)/(7*142857) = 428571/999999 = 0.dot(4)2857dot(1)#
