Yes.

0.166666... with an infinite number of 6s. This is a non-terminating decimal.

If it stops there then it is a terminating decimal.

Yes because 3/6 = 1/2 = 0.5

0.8571

It is a non-terminating decimal. It would be properly written as 0.23456 with a bar over the 5 and 6 ONLY.

6/6 is 1 or 1.0 as a decimal

certainly not Not necessarily. 1/3 = 0.333... 1/6 = 0.166... 1/3 + 1/6 = 1/2 = 0.5, a terminating decimal.

It is a recurring decimal. You only get a terminating decimal if, in the lowest form, the denominaor of the fraction is a factor of 10 or a power of 10. That is to say, only if the denominator is of the form 2m5n where m and n are non-negative integers.

1/6 is a non-terminating, repeating decimal. It starts as 0.16 and continues onward with 6s infinitely. Usually this value is truncated after a certain number of place. See this example of a truncated version of the decimal 1/6. 0.16666666666666666666666666666667

6 1/6 = 6.16666667

1/3, 1/6, 1/7, 1/9, 1/11, 1/12, 1/13, 1/14, 1/15 all have repeating decimal representations, while 1/2, 1/4, 1/5, 1/8, 1/10, and 1/16 have terminating decimal representations.
