# What is the rational number equivalent to 3 point 24 with a bar over 24?

A rational number is a number such that it can be expressed as the quotient or fraction p/q of two integers, a numerator p, and a non-zero denominator q.

## Answer: 107/33 is the rational number equivalent to 3 point 24 with a bar over 24.

3 point 24 with bar is represented as 3.24242424...

**Explanation:**

Let a = 3.242424..... ---(1)

Multiply the equation (1) by 100 and subtract it equation by the equation (1)

100a = 324.242424.... ---(2)

Now, subtract equation (1) from equation (2)

100a - a = 324.242424.... - 3.242424.....

99a = 321

a = 321/99 = 107/33
