Hello,

Our lessons is being even harder.Not so, though.

Okay.

I want to ask if my mathematical solution was correct. I am not going to post the whole mathematical notation. So, just the answer. I hope, I am correct.

Terminating decimal to a fraction first.

346.435 = $\frac{346435}{1000}$

Repeating decimal to a fraction, for the second.
$0.000^{346}$
Please, the 346 number has a bar line on top, indicating it as a repeating fraction.

Therefore, my answer is, $\frac{346}{999000}$

The way to input a bar in Latex is
Code ( (Unknown Language)):
1.
2. 0.000\bar{346}
and it gives you this:
$0.000\bar{346}$

As far as I can see both your answers are correct.

Err, you might want to check your result. It seems that you messed your Latex up and the result is unreadable. Write it in plain one-line equation if you have trouble with Latex.

$346\frac{435}{1000}=\frac {1000(346)+435}{1000}=\frac{346000+435}{1000}= \frac{346435}{1000}$
