Q. 1 C5.0( 2 Votes )

Without actually performing the long division, state whether the following rational numbers have terminating or non-terminating repeating (recurring) decimal expansion.


Answer :

Given rational number is


is terminating if


a) p and q are co-prime &


b) q is of the form of 2n 5m where n and m are non-negative integers.


Firstly, we check co-prime


29 = 29 × 1


343 = 7 × 7 × 7


29 and 343 have no common factors


Therefore, 29 and 343 are co-prime.


Now, we have to check that q is in the form of 2n5m


343 = 73


So, denominator is not of the form 2n5m


Thus, is a non-terminating repeating decimal.
