There are many different ways to find out how many cups of sugar come in five pounds of sugar. This calculator is a fairly basic example and assumes the user wants to say how many cups of sugar come in one whole pound of sugar.

Multiply

This is because the number is multiplied by a power of 10 such that the decimal point is removed. The resulting number is then shown divided by the same power of 10 to represent the original number as a fraction.

For example: Using a 3/8"-16 threaded rod. With 16 threads per inch multiplied by 200 steps in a full motor rotation. You would need to enter 3200 to travel a 1 inch 'unit of measure' of the threaded rod. (Source: play.google.com)

Repeat

, then the fraction is obtained by breaking the number into a sum of the non-repeating portion and the repeating portion. Each element is converted separately, the non repeating portion is converted as explained above, while the fraction for the repeating portion is obtained by dividing the repeating figures by a number of 9's equal to the length of the sequence, followed by a number of '0's equal to the the number of 0's between the dot and the repeating digits.

The bar depicted above is presented above the repeating element of the numerical string. This is known as the repetend. You may wish to convert a fraction to a decimal to make adding and subtracting quantities more straightforward. However, it is common to encounter a repeating decimal in practical math when you convert fractions to percentages or decimals, and this reduces the accuracy of the calculation.
