# What is 1 2/3 written as a decimal and a percent?

Dec 21, 2014

We can indicate this as 1.dot6 or 166 2/3%

#### Explanation:

FIRST $1 \frac{2}{3}$ can be written as $\frac{5}{3}$

This is how you can write it if you want it to come to a stop $1.6666666666666666666666666666667$

but it does actually keep recurring to infinity.

We can indicate this as $1. \dot{6}$

SO now you want it to be expressed as a %.

Basically you can call it $166.7$% (it is actually

166.66666666666666666666666666667%) but it would go on for ever.

A more accurate way of giving the percent is as 166 2/3%

This has not been rounded and is an exact amount.
