Best Answer

No...and Yes.

As written 0.8888888888 is a terminating decimal but 8 divided by 9 is 0.888... with the 8 recurring, so as written 8 divided by 9 is not 0.8888888888.

However, if your decimals written as terminating decimals are meant to be recurring decimals then:

8/9 + 1/9 = 0.888... + 0.111... = 0.999...

But 8/9 + 1/9 = 9/9 = 1

Thus 0.999... and 1 are equal; so 9 divided by 9 does equal 0.999... (with the 9 recurring) but only because 0.999...equals 1.
