Okay, what is the probability that if you take two repeating decimals, 1/3 and 1/30, and find their difference.

What is the probability that the difference will be a terminated decimal??

LOL, John!

Perhaps sureshrgp wants the two subjects separately, though

For probability puzzles, see here: http://www.mathsisfun.com/forum/viewtopic.php?id=2985
