Presumably you want to convert that into a fraction. Here is an example.

Your number is 0.4121212... ("12" is repeated)

Call this "x":

x = 0.4121212...

Multiply this by 100 (if three digits repeat, multiply by 1000, if 4 digits repeat, by 10,000, etc.), and subtract:

100x = 12.21212...

x = 0.41212...

99x = 11.8

Therefore, x = 11.8 / 99 = 118/990.

The final step is to see whether you can simplify the fraction.

What is a non-terminating number?

A nonterminating number does not end. An example is the fraction 1/3. When written as a decimal, it is a nonterminating number. Also pi is a nonterminating number. Some nonterminating numbers are repeating, some are nonrepeating. But they just don't end.

Terminating and nonterminating decimal?

a terminating decimal is one that has an end like 1/2 is 0.5 nonterminating does not end like 1/3 is 0.33333333333333333333333333333333333333333... where there are an infinite number of 3s on the end. 1/4 is 0.25 so it is also terminating pi is a nonterminating number it is 3.14159265359... it also doesn't have a set pattern to go by so its not only a nonterminating decimal, but it is an irrational number. Hope that helps
