Any TERMINATING decimal can be written as a fraction with a denominator that is a power of 10 - which has the prime factors 2 and 5. Therefore, any fraction (in simplest terms) must have a denominator which is only made up of the prime factors 2 and 5. Any other factor, and the fraction will not be terminating.As to why it repeats, that's because in the division, there are only so many options. For example, if you divide by 7, the remainder, in each step of the division, can only be a number between 1 and 6. Eventually, the pattern will repeat.

Actually ALL fractions are either terminating, or they are equivalent to repeating decimals.Try to carry out the long division, by hand, using ANY fraction; for example, 1/7. At each step, there will be a remainder. If this remainder happens to be zero, the division stops (the decimal is terminating). However, if it doesn't stop, there can only be (in this example, when dividing by 7), six different options for the remainder; therefore, sooner or later, you MUST get a remainder that you already had before; therefore, the pattern repeats. Note: The fractions (in simplest terms) that are equivalent to terminating decimals are exactly those which have a denominator whose only prime factors are 2 and 5. This is because those are the prime factors that make up the number 10 - the base of our decimal number system.

Two possible options are 120/10 and 1200/100.

Some options are: 37/10, 373737/101010.

You have 9 options for the first position (all except zero); 9 options for the second position (any digit except the digit used for the first position; 8 options for the third position; 7 options for the fourth position; 6 options for the fifth position; and 5 options for the sixth position. Multiply everything together.

Of these four options the correct answer is A: embarrassment. The other three options contain incorrect repeating letters.

Read the whole thing through first to make any sense. I hope it helps you. If the decimal is non-repeating: divide the number over 100. Ex. 0.5= 50/100= 1/2= 0.5, .25= 25/100= 1/4= 0.25, .375= 375/1000= 3/8= 0.375 always have at least two numbers over 100, 0.5= 50/100, and have the same number of digits as the decimal, .375=375, but it has to be over 1000 because there has to be one more digit on the bottom number (denominator) than the top number (numerator). If the decimal is repeating: divide the number over 99. Ex. 0.3 repeating= 33/99= 1/3= 0.3 repeating, 0.45 repeating= 45/99= 5/11= 0.45 repeating, 0.142857 repeating= 142857/999999= 1/7= 0.142857 repeating. always have at least two numbers over 99, 0.3= 33/99, and have the same number of digits as the decimal, 142857/999999, but it has to be over 999999 (6 9's) because there has to be the same number of digits on the bottom number (denominator) and on the top number (numerator). The two options I have explained only work to a certain extent. A regular calculator will not convert a decimal to a fraction. You will have to work it out by hand from the two ways I have explained. If you have a TI-34 II and maybe only some other certain calculators, type the decimal in and type the fraction button, and it will tell you the fraction in lowest terms.

There are no options from A to E. It is not possible to answer the question without any options to choose from.

Two possible options are 11120/10 and 111200/100.

There are infinitely many options. One of the simplest is 1*130
