# Without Actual Division Show that Each of the Following Rational Numbers is a Non-terminating Repeating Decimal. (I) 11/(2^3× 3) - Mathematics

Without actual division show that each of the following rational numbers is a non-terminating repeating decimal.

(i) 11/(2^3× 3)

#### Solution

11/(2^3× 3)
We know either 2 or 3 is not a factor of 11, so it is in its simplest form.
Moreover, (23× 3) ≠ (2m × 5n
Hence, the given rational is non – terminating repeating decimal.
