# Repeating Decimals

Decimal numbers, also known as non-integers, are used to represent numbers that are not whole. They fall in between two whole numbers and are used to express more precise values.

Repeating decimals are a specific type of decimal number where one or more digits after the decimal point repeat indefinitely. These decimals can be identified by a bar above the repeating digits.

## A step-by-step guide to converting a fraction to a repeating decimal

To convert a fraction to a repeating decimal, you can divide the numerator by the denominator. The result will be a decimal number, and if the division does not terminate, the digits after the decimal point will repeat indefinitely. This is a method to represent fractions that cannot be simplified to a whole number or a mixed number.
