If it repeats, there should be a little line over the last digit(s) that repeat. If it terminates, then the numbers will not repeat.

A polynomial of degree zero is a constant term

The grouping method of factoring can still be used when only some of the terms share a common factor A True B False

The sum or difference of p and q is the of the x-term in the trinomial

A number a power of a variable or a product of the two is a monomial while a polynomial is the of monomials

How can you tell whether a given decimal can be written as a fraction?

If the decimal stops or repeats, it can be written as a fraction. If it goes on randomly forever, it can't.


How do you convert 22.3333333 into a fraction?

This depends on whether the the number is a repeating decimal. If the decimal repeats, find the fraction that is associated with the repeating decimal, in this case, 1/3. Then, if you want a common fraction instead of a mixed number, multiply 22 by the denominator and add it to the numerator to get 67/3. If the decimal does not repeat, try putting 223333333 over 10000000 and simplify it.


How do you convert a fraction to a non-recurring decimal?

To convert a fraction to a decimal, divide the denominator into the numerator. Whether it is recurring or not depends on the fraction.


What is the decimal of 285500?

The location of the decimal of 285500 depends on whether this is a fraction. It could also depend on whether this is a percentage.


How do you determine whether you can write a given decimal as a fraction?

If the decimal is terminating or repeating then it can be written as a fraction. Decimal representations which are non-terminating and non-repeating cannot be expressed as a fraction.


Is 025 repeating a rational number?

250,250,250,250...? Technically, no, because any number that repeats itself, whether it is a decimal or not, is irrational.


How can you predict whether a quotient will be terminating decimal or a repeating decimal?

If the denominator of the fraction, when written in its simplest form, has any prime factor other than 2 or 5 then it will be a repeating decimal fraction otherwise it will terminate.

What is the decimal of the fraction when the fraction is in lowest terms?

A fraction is equivalent to the same decimal, whether or not it is in its lowest terms. For example, 3/4 = 0.75 12/16 = 0.75 27/36 = 0.75 30/40 = 0.75 and so on.


What is 333333333333333333333 as a fraction?

We can't tell whether there's supposed to be a decimal point before that number. If there's a decimal point before it, then the number is equivalent to the fraction 333,333,333,333,333,333,333/1,000,000,000,000,000,000,000 . If there's no decimal point before it, then the question is truly absurd, and the number is equivalent to the fraction 333,333,333,333,333,333,333/1


What is the equivalent fraction to the decimal 0.16 repeating?

The question cannot be answered because it is ambiguous. It is not clear whether the repeating decimal is meant to be 0.161616... or 0.166666... .


How can you tell that a number is rational?

If you can write the number as a fraction, with integers in the numerator and the denominator, it is rational. In the case of decimal numbers, if the decimal representation terminates (e.g. 2.16), or is periodic (perhaps after some initial digits, like 4.130202020202...), then it is rational. For numbers defined according to some rule, it is not always known whether they are rational or irrational. ILuv You!![; <3 Hope This Helps You!!(:


Is 17.70027485281086486350.. rational or irrational?

If that's the complete number, then it's rational. But I see two periods after the '350'. Are those meant to suggest that the decimal goes on further ? If so, then in order to answer your question, we need to know whether the decimal ever ends or repeats. -- If it never ends or repeats, then it's an irrational number. -- If it ever ends or repeats, even if the repeat is several thousand digits long, then the number is rational.


What is 2.4cm as a fraction?

2.4 = 24/10 = 12/5. Whether it is cm or some other unit of measurement is irrelevant in terms of converting a decimal number to a fraction.


How do you convert equivalent fractions to decimals?

Whether they are equivalent doesn't matter. To convert a fraction to a decimal, divide the denominator into the numerator.


What is bigger 0.5 or 40 hundredths in fractions?

0.5 is bigger. And it remains bigger whether expressed as a decimal, a fraction or in words.


How can you predict whether a fraction will give a recurring or terminating decimal?

Reduce the fraction to its simplest form - that is, remove any common factors between the numerator and denominator. If the denominator now is a factor of some power of 10, that is, if the denominator is of the form 2a*5b then the fraction will me a terminating decimal. If not, it will not.


What is the fraction form of the following decimal expansion 0.8412 repeated?

The question cannot be answered because it is ambiguous. It is not clear whether the fraction is meant to be 0.84128412... or 0.8412412412... or 0.84121212... or 0.841222... .


How can you predict whether a fraction will terminate?

if the denominators only prime factor is a 2 and 5 (if it has any) the decimal will terminate otherwise it wont.


What is 1.18 as a fraction?

1.18 repeating is a fraction. It is a fraction in decimal form rather than in the form of a ratio. However, that does not stop it being a fraction. The question cannot be answered in any more detail because it is ambiguous: it is not clear whether it is meant to be 1.181818... or 1.188888...


What do you do to check whether a number is rational or irrational?

If its decimal representation is either terminating or a repeating number then it is rational. Otherwise it is irrational.


What is 25 repeating to fraction?

It is not possible to answer this question. There is no decimal point in the number and so repeating does not make sense. Furthermore, it is not possible to guess whether the intended fraction is 0.252525... or 0.2555... or 2.555... .
