    Please let me know how to braille this number correctly.


    Also, how does the student know the repeating numbers are 46 and not just the number 6?
    Once again, thanks!

    Hi Laura.
    The ellipsis must be spaced (see NC Sec.43b)
    Braille the entire numeral, then one blank cell, then the ellipsis.

    As for your curiosity question, I have asked my favorite math teacher who says that
    repeating decimals should have a horizontal bar (macron) over the repeating numeral/s.
    He would interpret 2.46... as a rounded number, with additional digits not shown.

    Regardless, we braille what we see, following Nemeth Code spacing rules.

    Thank you for your question.
