What I do is just put dots at the end of the number. For example, if my the decimal 0.4 was repeating, I would write it as 0.444.... I have also never found out how to put the line on top of the number.

In Latex on this site you could also do 0. \overline{repeating numbers in the decimal}

There was a guest who kept cussing at me too, I think it's probably the same one.
