Full Answer

When divided as such, some fractions come out even and are called "terminating decimals." There are no repeating figures in terminating decimals. Other numbers, such as 2/3, are called "recurring decimals." When dividing 2/3, the division does not work out as an even number, so the six is repeated to infinity.
