For how many integer values of between 1 and 1000 inclusive does the decimal representation of terminate?

You must not be asking this correctly.

The decimal representation for any integer terminates. They have no non-zero digits to the right of the decimal point at all.

well there is just one integer between 1 and 3 that is the number 2

there are 5 integers between 1 and 7 they are 2,3,4,5,6

So there must be 1000-1-1 = 998 integers BETWEEN 1 and 1000.

This is clearly not what the guest asked, his question is missing something. Why did you mark this with a checkmark?

I think this is the best interpretation for this question.

But yes it is, at best, a poorly written question and it has been answered.

It looks like it has been through an interpreter and the interpreter has not worked adequately.
