Real Numbers

  • The following fractions share a common denominator: 1/6, 2/6, 3/6, 4/6, 5/6, 6/6.
  • 1/6 is a recurring decimal. 
  • Janice concluded that all other fractions with denominator are also recurring decimals.
  • Do you agree? Explain... 
No, I do not agree with Janice's conclusion.
I do not agree as 3/6 can be reduced to 1/2 which is 0.5, 6/6 can be reduced to 1. These two numbers have 6 as their denominators but are not recurring numbers
