How fractions are related to repeating decimals and terminating decimals?

All rational fractions - one integer divided by a non-zero integer - give rise to repeating or terminating decimals. If, for the fraction in its simplest form, the denominator can be expressed as a product of powers of only 2 and 5 then the decimal will terminate. If the denominator has any prime factor other than 2 or 5 the decimal will be recurring. All non-rational fractions will have infinite, non-recurring decimal representations.
