    1/6 = .1666666..... repeating 6's. you normally would round up the final 6 you choose to display to a 7

    usually I'd say 16.67% is acceptable

    ok...then in the answer field maybe you should write 1/6 = .16666...if you write .166 you can write a bar over the final 6, that represents repeating decimals
