Hello! I would be really thankful if you could tell me how to translate 'decimal exacto' in English. I have been looking for the translation on the Internet abut I couldn't find it anywhere. Thanks in advance.

Perdona pero no tengo mi matemática al día. Si recuerdo bien, decimales exactos son aquéllos números que tienen números después de la coma pero no son periódicos o tienen un número finito de cifras decimales. (Por favor corrígeme si me equivoco). De ser así, puede ser que lo que buscas es terminating decimal. Hay algo sobre esto aquí, tercer párrafo: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Repeating_decimal Espero te ayude.

What's the context? How is it used? Edit: What bumblecat found must be it. Also: ''exact decimal"': http://www.google.com/search?hl=en&...fai=CrUaE_3rUTIziFojKgwT3rriiDwAAAKoEBU_QrmDY Ex.

Hi vibeca, I'm not sure because I'm not an expert but I think it's 'accurate decimal' but let's see what native speakers say.

Perhaps what you are looking for is "exact decimal." I found that term used on this page: http://www.mathsrevision.net/gcse/pages.php?page=8 Maybe you can tell from the website whether it is the meaning you are looking for. Personally, I didn't know what it meant in either language until I read that page! Saludos

Thanks to everybody. It's a mathematical context and I'm not an expert on that field. Un saludo a todos.
