If the fraction d were converted into a decimal, would there be more than 3 nonzero digits to the right of the decimal point?

(1) The denominator of d is exactly 8 times the numerator of d.
(2) If d were converted into a decimal, d would be a non-repeating decimal.

Let d=\frac{x}{y}.

(1) The denominator of d is exactly 8 times the numerator of d. Given that y=8x, thus d=\frac{x}{8x}=\frac{1}{8}=0.125. Sufficient.

(2) If d were converted into a decimal, d would be a non-repeating decimal. Clearly insufficient, for example d could be 0.1 or 0.1234. Not sufficient.

Answer: A.

P.S. Please read carefully and follow: rules-for-posting-please-read-this-before-posting-133935.html Please pay attention to the rule#3. Thank you.

Thanks bunuel - but is 0.1 a non repeating decimal?

I am actually confused & assumed pie (3.14...) as my example and marked D.

We are told that "If d were converted into a decimal, d would be a non-repeating decimal", thus 0.1 and 0.1234 are valid examples.
