0.6666...... This decimal RECURS

4 ÷ 27 = 0.148148148148

0.148148148.... Its pattern REPEATS.

I'm stuck with these questions (below). Any help will be much much appreciated thanks!

**Which fractions will terminate and which will recur or repeat. **

Are there any other possibilities than terminate, recur or repeat?

Can you explain WHY some groups of fractions terminate, recur or repeat?
