Decimals
how do you write a decimal that keeps going forever but doesn't repeat? How do you write a number that goes on forever but does repeat(has a pattern?) how do you turn both of those into a fraction and percent? How do you round them (in finance or other?) how many ways can you round? And how exactly do you write them on paper? I've seen at least a few different ways that people round them and I don't understand.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0how do you write a decimal that keeps going forever but doesn't repeat? you obviously can't write all the decimals because you will never finish. but you can give a name to it and what it represents. for example: the ratio of any circle's circumference divided by its diameter that is a number, and it turns out to be a number with decimals that go on forever. or you can write such a number by saying it is the solution to some specific equation.
