Terminating Decimal


Today on Math Out Loud, we’ll focus on the word terminating decimal, t-e-r-m-i-n-a-t-i-n-g d-e-c-i-m-a-l. The first time the word terminating decimal was used was in 1882 by John Ogilvie. Terminating decimal means capable of coming to an end or a decimal number that ends or terminates. A terminating decimal such as 0.75 has a finite number. A non-example is a repeating decimal which is a decimal that never ends. We’re the Math Masters with the word story of terminating decimal on Math Out Loud!
