You must put it to repeat

Little help with math? 
Writeacher,

Reiny,
Dividing any number by 7 gives the repeating decimal of
142857 which rotates about itself
very unusual .....
e.g.
1/7 = .14285714285714..
2/7 = .285714285714..
3/7 = .428571 ...
4/7 = .571482 ..
...
6/7 = ..857142..
4803/7 = 686.142857.. just look at the decimal
and
48.03/7 = 6.86142857...
don't we just have to move the decimal place two spots ???
