With reference to Section C of Worksheet 6:
Investigate some other fraction families such as 1/3, 1/7, 1/9, 1/11, 1/13, 1/17, 1/19.
Which category do these number belong to.

Let's use NUMBERS to help us.
Using numbers, express 1/n as decimals (where 0<n<100).

Indicate which of these numbers are Terminating Decimal and which are Recurring Decimals.

Post the following in your blog (and include the permlink in the comments):
