Hi, just have a quick question here, which is not totally about this challenge explanation but does concern repeating decimals. Once at my school, we solved an equation with the result being a repeating decimal: 0.016 (the 6 being repeated). There was a little confusion about how to say it in word form, as we were told to use "and" instead of "point" to refer to the decimal point. For example: "zero and 16 thousandths repeating". But doesn't that sound like the whole 16 is repeating (.0161616...)? So please if possible let us/me know what you think it should be. Help is appreciated!
Thank you!
