A decimal fraction is said to be repeating if, after a finite number of digits, there is a string of a finite number of digits which repeats itself for ever more.

For example,

1537/700 = 2.19571428571428...

The first three digits in the decimal representation are not part of the repeating pattern. After that, however, the string "591428" repeats endlessly.
