### [Solved] Recurring decimals in Math editor

Posted: Wed Nov 09, 2016 11:26 pm
I want to write 1/3 in decimal form: 0.3 with a dot above the 3

I have tried
0. dot 3
but that leaves a space between the decimal point and the 3

0.dot 3
doesn't work either

Is there a solution?

`dot { 0.3~  } `

You can use the "nospace" modifier on a grouped object (use braces - {} - to delimit group) to avoid spacing between sub-elements:
Single digit with dot
Code: Select all   Expand viewCollapse view
`nospace {0. dot 3}nospace {0.3 dot 3}nospace {0.3 {3 csup .}}`

...and also with overline...
Code: Select all   Expand viewCollapse view
`1 over 7 = nospace {0. overline {142857} }`
