Terminating and Recurring Decimals


!
This post is a part of the Special Questions Directory focusing on Quant topics traditionally neglected and not covered by conventional sources but still tested on the GMAT. Many of these are above average difficulty questions

Below are questions on which test various properties of terminating and recurring decimals.

Termination decimal is a decimal number that has digits that do not go on forever.
For example:
0.15 (it has two decimal digits)
7.2371 (it has four decimal digits)

In contrast a Recurring Decimal has digits that go on forever.
For example:
1/3 = 0.333... (the 3 repeats forever) is a Recurring Decimal, not a Terminating Decimal.
