25.3333

a decimal in which a digit or group of digits repeats without end

In a repeating decimal, sometimes one digit repeats and sometimes more than one digit repeats.

It is a repeating decimal.

4.83333333 (the digit 3 repeats indefinitely).

__ .6 would be the proper way (a bar written over the 6, which means that digit repeats indefinitely). For common calculations, people may round to a certain number of decimal places. In that case you would have 0.67 or 0.6667 where the last digit is 7 because that digit gets rounded up.

It is 0. As is every digit after the decimal point.

A decimal is a rational number if it ever ends, or if it repeats the same single digit or set of digits forever.

If I understand your question, you want to know the meaning of the phrase "repeating decimal". It just means an infinite decimal expansion (a decimal with infinitely many digits) in which, from some point on, the same digit or group of digits just keeps repeating forever. Every rational number (fraction) has a decimal that either terminates (in which case it can be considered to be a repeating decimal in which the digit 0 keeps repeating; 1/2 = 0.5 = 0.5000000000...) or repeats. An irrational number has a decimal expansion that never repeats. For example, 1/3 = 0.33333333333...; 1/7 = 0.142857142857142857...; 1/30 = 0.03333333333.... and is often represented with a line above the repeating number

It is expressing a number in decimal form: that is, a form in which the place value of each digit is one tenth the place value of the digit to its left.

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.

When you convert a fraction to a decimal sometimes the decimal repeats forever. For example 1/3 as a decimal = 0.333333333.... (or 0.3 "recurring"). Another example is 1/7=0.142857142857.... (or 0.142857 recurring).

To show a repeating decimal you put a dot above the digit that repeats.

7/38 = approx 0.18421 It has, in fact an 18-digit string which repeats.

A decimal number is simply a way of representing a number in such a way that the place value of each digit is ten times that of the digit to its right. A decimal representation does not require a decimal point. So the required decimal representation is 135, exactly as in the question.

Two thirds as a decimal is 0.6666666 \9the digit 6 repeats to infinity).

No, there can be any finite number of repeating digits. For example, 1/9 = 0.101010... where 10 repeats. Division by 7 gives rise to a six-digit string which repeats.

A dot over the first and last number if the repeating entity is a series of numbers (such as the decimal of 1/7) , two dots if it is one number repeating (such as the decimal of 1/3)

If you're dealing with a recurring decimal then it is common practice to place a dot over the digit that recurs, e.g. the fraction 1/3 written as a decimal would have a dot placed over the second or third digit (in this case a 3) behind the decimal point to idicate that it recurrs infinitely.

The type of decimal that has a final digit is a Terminating Decimal!!! Hope you enjoy!

The system's notation makes use of three-digit Arabic numerals for main classes, with fractional decimals allowing expansion for further detail.

Not necessarily.
