13/17 =0.76470588235294117647058823529412. No, it repeats every 16 digits. Count them from left.

No......a fraction will have a terminating decimal representation only if its denominator can be factored solely in terms of 2, 5 or both.......

 

Since 17 is prime.......it can't be factored in terms of anything else

 

 

cool cool cool
