Remember…

Numbers can be written in both fraction and decimal form.

- For example, 3 can be written as 3/1 and 3.0.

A fraction illustrates division;

- 1/10 means 1 divided by 10. 1/10 is 0.1 in decimal form.

3/100 means 3 divided by 100. 3/100 is 0.03 in decimal form.

45/1000 means 45 divided by 1000. 45/1000 is 0.045 in decimal form.

Decimals, such as 0.1 and 0.25, are **terminating** decimals. Each decimal has a definite number of decimal places.

Decimals, such as 0.33333333…; 0.45454545….; 0.81111111… are** repeating**decimals. Some digits in each repeating decimal repeat forever. We draw a bar over the digits that repeat

Patterns sometimes occur when we write fractions in decimal form.

- For example: 1/99 = 0.01 2/99 = 0.02 15/99 = 0.15 43/99 = 0.43
- For fractions with a denominator of 99, the digits in the numerator of the fraction are the repeating digits in the decimal.
- We can use this pattern to make predictions.
