There is no such example. If you cannot use an exact fraction then there will not be an exact decimal that you can use instead. And, if you are using an approximate decimal, you could use an approximate fraction instead.

terminating decimal is when the quotient has the remainder of zero.

To type a decimal point, you use the period key. .

Use the dp rule decimal is on the left and percent to the right. Move the decimal two places to the left to change to a decimal. 2.64

Not in the way we that would use a decimal point today. But they did use points to signify fractions of 12.

The use of a resistance box or a "Decade Box" is to help calibrate instruments used to measure electrical values such as Voltage, Current, and Resistance. Without them you would not have a known value of resistance to use as a set point.

we use it when we require a variable resistance in a circuit

a box which has resistance between 1 ohm to 50000 ohm

Resistance decade box is nothing but Resistance bank. It has various ranges of Resistance value ranging from few ohms to few mega ohms. In other terms, large value of resistance are fabricated in single box is said to be Resistance decade box.

It depends on what you want to accomplish. If you want to decrease the resistance in a circuit, you would place the box in parallel to some other resistor. If you want to increase the resistance in a circuit, you would place the box in series.

how to calculate resistance box for slipring motors

Resistance box will provide resistance of discrete values such as 1, 2, 3 ohms or 0.1,0.2, 0.3 ohms. So interim values are not possible. But rheostat gives a chance to vary the resistance continuously. It may be 5 ohm or even 5.769 ohm. So just to fix current for a specified value such 1.5 ampere resistance box will not be suitable where as a rheostat is the most suitable.

Resistance is futile!

no we not use resistance in place of diode.

It would be desirable to use wire with as small a temperature coefficient as possible, so that the 'standard' resistances of the box don't wander all over the place every time a breeze wafts through the lab. If you want to get really clever, maybe you could find one wire product with a positive temperature coefficient, and another product with a negative coefficient, and then use a piece of each kind to wind each resistance. That way, when the temperature changes, part of each resistance will increase and the rest of it will decrease, and if you planned the proportions effectively, you might really be able to limit the resistance-drift to almost nothing.

Computers use a binary system, not decimal.
