Changing fractions to decimals : To change a fraction to a decimal simply
do what the operation says. In other words 3/5 means 3 is divided by 5. So do
just that.
Irrational Numbers : If the decimal representation
of a number is nonterminating, nonreccuring type, then the number
is an irrational number or a number which cannot be expressed as a
ratio of two integers (p/q type), is called an irrational type.
For example, 0.10100100010001....., 21.0120340560......, the numbers p
, e or all surds like Ö
2, Ö
3, Ö
5 etc.
