**Know Rational Numbers Are Either Terminating Or Repeating Decimals**

Pre - Algebra Bench Mark 7 Know Rational Numbers Are Either Terminating Or Repeating Decimals Vocabulary: rational number number that can be expressed as a ratio of two integers terminating decimal number when expressed as a decimal has a finite decimal expansion; also called a regular number repeating decimal number when expressed as a decimal has a ‘final’ set of digits which repeat an infinite number of times; also called a recurring decimal period the number of recurring digits in a repeating decimal; also called the repetend vinculum a horizontal line placed over the recurring digits in a repeating decimal

**Know Rational Numbers Are Either Terminating Or Repeating Decimals**

Pre - Algebra Bench Mark 7 Know Rational Numbers Are Either Terminating Or Repeating Decimals It is obvious that terminating decimals are rational numbers. For example, 0.75 = = 75 100 3 4 0.625 = = 625 1000 5 8 and 0.6 = = 6 10 3 5 It is much less evident that repeating decimals are also rational numbers. For example, 1 9 = , 1 6 = and = 4 11 So we can see that repeating decimals are also rational numbers.

**Know Rational Numbers Are Either Terminating Or Repeating Decimals**

Pre - Algebra Bench Mark 7 Know Rational Numbers Are Either Terminating Or Repeating Decimals The real challenge will be to write a fraction in simplest form given a repeating decimal. To illustrate, lets make up a repeating decimal such as We will name our number a = and multiply it by a power of 10, then subtract the original a and the new number so that the repeating decimal parts cancel each other in the subtraction. a = and multiply it by a power of 10, 10a = The decimals do not line up so try multiplying by 100. 100a = The decimals line up and the repeating parts will cancel. 100a = a = 60 99 20 33 = - a = 20 33 So, = 99a = 60 Solve for a and reduce.

**Find the period of the repeating part of . . 9 9 9 Divide. 11 1.0 - 99**

Pre - Algebra Bench Mark 7 Know Rational Numbers Are Either Terminating Or Repeating Decimals Example 1 11 Find the period of the repeating part of . 9 9 9 Divide. - 99 1 - 99 1 - 99 1 We can see that 2 digits (0 and 9) are repeating so the period is 2.
