Non-terminating decimal

A non-terminating decimal goes on without end.


1. may be written as the decimal fraction 0.3. The bar indicates that 3 continues to repeat itself indefinitely. Thus, 0.3 or 0.333... is a non-terminating decimal.
2. may be written in decimal form as 0.27. In this number, the "27" repeats. Thus, 0.27, or 0.2727..., is a non-terminating decimal.
