categories: those that can be written as a terminating

decimal and those that cannot. Write an explanation

of how you made your decisions.

b. Form a conjecture about which fractions can be

expressed as terminating decimals.

c. Test your conjecture on the following fractions:6/12,7/15,28/140,

and 0/7

d. Use the ideas of equivalent fractions and common

multiples to verify your conjecture.

**Ms. Sue**, Sunday, September 27, 2009 at 7:26pmThe first thing you need to do is divide all of the fractions' numerators by their denominators -- probably using a calculator.

2/6 = 0.33333333333333333333333333

This is not a terminating decimal.
