What? I don't get this
You must put it to repeat
What does "put it to repeat" mean?
Its dividing and giving the answer as the repeating decimal form.
Its just confusing

Do you see the repetition?
O gosh I should've known!
PS -- www.wolframalpha.com is a fantastic website for math students!
Dividing any number by 7 gives the repeating decimal of
142857 which rotates about itself
very unusual .....
1/7 = .14285714285714..
2/7 = .285714285714..
3/7 = .428571 ...
4/7 = .571482 ..
6/7 = ..857142..
4803/7 = 686.142857.. just look at the decimal
48.03/7 = 6.86142857...
don't we just have to move the decimal place two spots ???
