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

(i) 29/343

#### Solution

29/343 = 29/(7^3)
We know 7 is not a factor of 29, so it is in its simplest form.
Moreover, 73 ≠ (2m × 5n)
Hence, the given rational is non- terminating repeating decimal.
