2.tell me those numbers which we use everyday.

3.write the natural numbers from beginning till 100

4.define decimal numbers

## Announcing the topic:

:Dear students Today we are going to learn about “ terminating and non-terminating decimals”

## Presentation:

teacher Will define terminating and non-terminating decimals and solve some examples on it

Terminating decimals. decimal which contains finite number of digits after decimal point, is called a terminating decimal.

Hence 0.5, 0.25, 0.75, 0.345, 1.7227, 5.023748 etc are all terminating decimals.

Non-Terminating Decimals: Non-terminating decimals are the ones which keep on continuing after decimal point.

Hence 0.777… 0.1666… 0.909090…. 0. 285714285714 …

Exercises and conversion

Let us consider the conversion of some rational numbers

(i) ¼=1÷4=0.

(ii) 1/5=1÷5=0.2

(iii) ½=1÷2=0.5

(iv) 3/8=3÷8=0.375

Pie is also a non-terminating numbers Value of pie is 22/7=22÷7=3.142857……… Summative evaluation: write definition of Terminating and non-terminating decimals in your note book with examples Homework: solve following exercise at your home
