**Before, I showed you how to convert fractions to decimals... But, only for certain, special kinds of fractions! These fractions had denominators that were only made up of 2's and 5's.**

**Like**

**To do these, you turned those denominators into powers of 10 to convert them to decimals.**

**Then, I told you that you needed another method to convert something like**

**So, here is that method! (Aren't you excited?)**

**To convert these critters into decimals, we use long division to divide the numerator by the denominator:**

Let's convert |
to a decimal. |

**Set it up and you'll see that the 3 doesn't divide in right away... So, we need to use our knowledge of decimal division!**

**Hey! We're stuck in a repeating loop, aren't we?**

**Yep, these things always convert into repeating decimals!**
