do you write 1/6 as 16.6% and .166?

OpenStudy (anonymous):

1/6 = .1666666..... repeating 6's. you normally would round up the final 6 you choose to display to a 7

OpenStudy (anonymous):

usually I'd say 16.67% is acceptable

OpenStudy (anonymous):

so then it would be .167 and 16.7%

OpenStudy (anonymous):

in what context are you inputting your answer?

OpenStudy (anonymous):

just converting fractions

OpenStudy (anonymous):

ok...then in the answer field maybe you should write 1/6 = .16666...if you write .166 you can write a bar over the final 6, that represents repeating decimals
