 The part before the repetend 2008-11-02 From Puerto:Hello, I teach mathematics in a bilingual programme using English. I have learned that the group of digits that repeat in a repeating decimal is called repetend but i need to know how are called the previous ones when the decimal is a delayed-repeating one. I mean, in 0.34555555 5 is the repetend, the period is one and...how are called 34? Thanks in advance.Answered by Stephen La Rocque and Penny Nom. 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.Answered by Penny Nom.
