#### Solution Preview

Let decimal expansions of two real numbers a and b (a<b) first differ in the nth digit.
First, if the nth digit is not the last digit of b, consider the number bn obtained from b by cutting all the digits of b after the nth, then: a<bn<b.
there is two cases here:
(1)b has non zero digits after the nth, Append to bn one zero digit, give the result number to t;
(2)b has zero digits right after the nth. Let bm be ...
