What do I do?
Do the math!
We'll start off with 0.333... (there are infinite threes after the point) Understand?
Now, tell me what FRACTION 0.333... is (when cancelled down)
Okay, so multiply 0.333... by 3 now.
Now, multiply your fraction (second answer) by 3. (Keep the same denominator!)
So, those last two answers... are they EQUAL, or UNEQUAL? (Hint: they start off the same, and you multiply them by the same amount)
