**Page 13 Exercise 1 Answer**

Given that, Sofia wrote a decimal as a fraction. Her classmate Nora says that her method and answer are not correct. Sofia disagrees and says that this is the method she learned.

We need to construct Arguments whether Nora or Sofia is correct or not.

The given decimal is 0.12112111211112…

Here, Sofia wrote this decimal as a fraction.

But it cannot be represented as a fraction since the given number is an irrational number.

Only terminating and repeating decimals can be represented as a fraction.

Here, the decimal is not terminating and it is not repeating. Thus, it cannot be represented as a fraction.

Nora’s Argument is correct. The given number cannot be represented as a fraction since it is an irrational number.
