In this section, we will learn how to change a non-decimal fraction into a decimal. We begin the process by dividing the numerator by the denominator
using our long division format. We will place a visible decimal point at the end of our dividend. We then drag this decimal point straight up into the
answer. We divide as we normally do, but now we are able to continue past the point of a remainder. Recall that we can add as many zeros after the decimal
point and not change the value of the divided. We can therefore continue to bring down zeros to continue our division. We keep this process going until
we get a zero remainder or a pattern that repeats forever. When we have a pattern that repeats forever, we notate this by placing a bar over the digit or
series of digits that continuously repeat.
