16 cannot become a decimal. only fractions can become decimals. 16 is a whole number. The closest you could get to a decimal would be 16.0

You could write it as 88.9 with the 9 repeating.

If it ends in a decimal, then it must be a whole number. Repeating could be ruled out immediately because even though theoretically it could be a thought of as a repeating decimal with infinite zeros repeating, adding zeros doesn't change the quantity and you could in theory add infinite zeros to the end of ANY decimal. That does not make it repeating.

It's an oxymoron.A decimal is either terminating or repeating. It can't be both.or it could be in the third category of integors.

We ususally stop on the thousandths but 3 hits out of 10 at bats could be considered a repeating decimal.

It could either be a terminating decimal or the decimal representation of an irrational number.

No, it is not.

It could be, but it could also be 1.1211211211211211211222 which is terminating or it could continue in a non-repeating fashion. From the information given in the question it is not possible to tell.

No. (Though you could express it in decimal form, as 1.285714285714..., a repeating non-terminating decimal.)

a fraction is a fraction! a decimal is a decimal! how could u not know that ?omg

As written it is a terminating decimal. However, if the digits 123456789101112 keep on repeating after the amount written (normally it would be written with a dot over the first 1 and the last 2; as that is impossible here, to show repeating an ellipsis (three dots) could be used, as in: 0.123456789101112123456789101112... to show that it goes on) then it is a repeating decimal.

They could be 3, 6, 7 or 9.
