It is a repeating decimal.

repeating decimal 1.1 as a fraction = 10/9

0.2 a repeating decimal into a fraction = 2/9

You do a long division, adding decimal digits until you get a remainder of zero (terminating decimal) or a repeating pattern of decimal digits.

A decimal number is like a mixed fraction: it has an integer part and a fractional part. If the fractional part is a repeating fraction then the whole number is represented by a repeating decimal.

If that is a terminating decimal, it is 2 535353/1000000 (as a mixed number) = 2535353/1000000 (as an improper fraction) If that is a repeating decimal 2.535353... with the 53 repeating, it is 2 53/99 = 251/99

If it's a 6 repeating decimal then it is 224/3 if not then it is 746666/10000

2.3 repeating is already a decimal. It would look like this: 2.33333333333333... If you want a rounded decimal, you can use 2.3. However, 2.3 repeating would be more useful as a fraction for proportions and things. As a fraction, it is 2 1/3 (two and one third).

If the decimal is terminating or repeating then it can be written as a fraction. Decimal representations which are non-terminating and non-repeating cannot be expressed as a fraction.

It depends on the repeating decimal, for instance. .3333333=1/3 however if you get a difficult one, for instance .1666666 you will just have to round, 17/100. Hope this helps

To sum this answer up you half to turn the fraction into a decimal and if it ends that is terminating but if it keeps going it is called a repeating decimal EXAMPLES Terminating- 5/10=.5 Repeating- 1/3=.3333 (bar notation over the 3)
