Repeating fractions 2008-09-09
From Juli:
My teacher recently put my math class to the test... We were deiscussing repeating fractions and she asked us to find out what the bar over a repeating decimal is called. I found out it was called the vinculum. But she also said to find out what the number under the vinculum was called. I can't seem to find it anywhere.
