10. The division problem ends A Terminating decimal The division problem goes on forever….Repeating decimal

11. Repeating Decimals A single digit might repeat…. .3333…. Or a group of digits might repeat… .275275275….

12. Show repeating decimals by placing a line over the digit or group of digits that repeats .33333…. Becomes .3 And .275275….becomes .275
