You posted this questin twice.
fractions with denominators of 3,6,7,9,11,12 (or multiples of these numbers) have decimal forms that repeat, while fractions with denominators of 2,4,5,8,10 (or multiples of these numbers)have decimal forms that terminate.
i predict that 1/25 has a terminating decimal
reason: 25 is a multiple of 5, which has a terminating decimal
Any power of 10 only has 2 and 5 as prime factors. So if the reduced fraction has a denominator with factors other than 2 or 5, those factors will always be there, and there will be no way to get the fraction expressed with a power of 10 for the denominator. So in conclusion: if the reduced form of the fraction has only 2 and 5 for prime factors in its denominator, then the decimal terminates.
