I came across of a 6-grader school problem to perform the following division 357.56/19. Pupils in the school understand that both numbers are numerically exact.
I would like to introduce Mathematica to children. How can I explain them how to solve this problem in MA? How can one find the period of this number?
Please, be pedagogical in you answers. I came up with
for the first question. But I still do not know a simple answer for the second question.
