To convert 0.87 (7 repeating) to a fraction:

Let x = 0.877777...

Multiply both sides of the equation by 10 to remove the repeating decimal:

10x = 8.77777...

Subtract the original equation from the modified equation to eliminate the repeating decimal:

10x - x = 8.77777... - 0.87777...

Simplify:

9x = 8

Divide both sides by 9:

x = 8/9

So, 0.87 (7 repeating) is equal to 8/9 as a fraction.
