 Use the following table:
 
                             Decimal Stops               Decimal Repeats
 
1 Digit                      divide by 10                  divide by 9
 
2 Digits                    divide by 100                 divide by 99
 
3 Digits                    divide by 1000               divide by 999
 
etc                              etc                                etc
 
 
EX.      0.75  <---- 2 decimal places and it stops; 
          per the table, divides by 100
 
 75/100 = 3/4
 
 
 
Ex.   0.555555555..... <----- 1 repeating decimal
 per the tables, divides by 9  , so 5/9
