Its dividing and giving the answer as the repeating decimal form.

Its just confusing

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 ???
