## What do you call a number that ends?

A repeating decimal or recurring decimal is decimal representation of a number whose digits are periodic (repeating its values at regular intervals) and the infinitely repeated portion is not zero. The infinitely repeated digit sequence is called the repetend or reptend.

## What does it mean if a decimal terminates?

terminating decimal

: a decimal which can be expressed in a finite number of figures or for which all figures to the right of some place are zero — compare repeating decimal.

**Is it terminating or repeating?**

Any rational number (that is, a fraction in lowest terms) can be written as either a terminating decimal or a repeating decimal . If you end up with a remainder of 0 , then you have a terminating decimal. Otherwise, the remainders will begin to repeat after some point, and you have a repeating decimal.

### Which is a terminating decimal quotient?

While expressing a fraction in the decimal form when we perform division we notice that the division is complete after a certain number of steps i.e., we get the remainder zero. The quotient obtained as decimal is called the terminating decimal.

### What is a number called that never ends?

An irrational number is a number that cannot be written as a ratio (or fraction). In decimal form, it never ends or repeats. The ancient Greeks discovered that not all numbers are rational; there are equations that cannot be solved using ratios of integers. The first such equation to be studied was 2=x2.

**Is 1 6 a terminating or repeating decimal?**

0.16666

So, 1/6 as a decimal is 0.16666… This is a non-terminating repeating decimal number. Irrespective of the methods used, the answer to 1/6 as a decimal will always remain the same. You can also verify your answer using Cuemath’s Fraction to Decimal Calculator.

#### Is 7/9 terminating or repeating?

As is evident from the image above, 7/9 is a non-terminating decimal equal to 0….

#### Is 2/9 terminating or repeating?

Answer: 2/9 is not terminating,but it is a recurring or repeating decimal.

**Is 3/25 is a terminating decimal?**

Here are the steps to determine if 3/25 is a terminating decimal number: 1) Find the denominator of 3/25 in its lowest form. Thus, the denominator of 3/25 in its lowest form is 25. 2) Find the prime factors of the answer in Step 1.

## What is the highest number?

Googol. It is a large number, unimaginably large. It is easy to write in exponential format: 10100, an extremely compact method, to easily represent the largest numbers (and also the smallest numbers).

## Which is the last digit of a decimal?

The last digit 5 is in the millionths place. This is called a mixed number. The decimal point separates the whole number 14 on the left, from the decimal fraction on the right. In a mixed number, we read the decimal point as “and.”

**Which is the correct way to name a decimal?**

We start by naming the number to the left of the decimal. We use the word “and” to indicate the decimal point. Then we name the number to the right of the decimal point as if it were a whole number. Last, name the decimal place of the last digit.

### Are there any synonyms for the word decimal?

Synonyms for decimal include fraction, number, unit, decimal number, base-10 number, numeral, integer, digit, figure and character. Find more similar words at wordhippo.com!

### What does th mean at the end of a number?

Notice two important facts shown in the tables. The “th” at the end of the name means the number is a fraction. “One thousand” is a number larger than one, but “one thousandth” is a number smaller than one. The tenths place is the first place to the right of the decimal, but the tens place is two places to the left of the decimal.
