Answer :

Let x = p/q be a rational number, such that the prime factorization of q is of the form 2^{n} 5^{m}, where n, m are non-negative integers. Then x has a decimal expansion which terminates.

The maximum power of 2 or 5 in the given rational number is 2.

So, it will terminate after 2 places of decimals.
