Best Answer

Any fraction with a denominator which has a prime factorization that includes any prime other than 2 or 5, it can produce repeating decimals.

If the prime factorization of the denominator does not include 2 nor 5 then the decimal representation will be a repeating decimal.

Is a decimal that ends with . terminating or 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.

Is 0.123456789101112123456789101112 a repeating decimal?

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.
