Let x = 5.4178178....-------------(1)
Here periodicity is 3
So,we have to multiply x with 1000
⇒1000×x = 1000×5.4178178...
⇒1000x = 5417.81781781..---------(2)
Now,(2) -(1)=
1000x = 5417.8178178...
x =      5.4178178...
⇒ 999x = 5412.4000........
⇒ x = 54124/9990
Therefore , p/q = 54124/9990 .

Let x = 5.4178178.....
Here , periodicity is 3
So, x is to be multiplied by 1000
⇒ x × 1000 = 5.4178178......× 1000
⇒1000x = 5417.8787..........
Now,1000x-x = 1000x=5417.8178.....
x=0005.4178..........
⇒999x = 5412.4000......
⇒x = 54124/9990 = 5.4178178........
