Repeating decimals

With my decimal to fraction calculator, you have the ability to enter repeating decimals by entering a figure into the 'Number of trailing decimal places to repeat' box. Simply enter the number of digits from the end of the decimal to repeat. For other non-repeating decimals, keep the default setting at 0.

As an example, if you want to convert a repeating decimal such as 1.234... then you should enter 1.234 into the Decimal box and 3 into the Number of trailing decimal places to repeat box (signifying that the last 3 digits of the number should repeat).
