**(a)** 5/18

= 0.2777….

For, 5/18 when 5 is divided by 18, the quotient is

For instance, 0.277777777777......... can also be written as

Alternatively, we can write it by placing a dot above the repeating digit 7 in the quotient.

**Therefore, 5/18 is a mixed
recurring decimal.**

**(b)** 5/6

= 0.833……..

For, 5/6 when 5 is divided by 6, the quotient is

For instance, 0.833......... can also be written as

Alternatively, we can write it by placing a dot above the repeating digit 3 in the quotient.

**Therefore, 5/6 is a mixed
recurring decimal.**

**(c)**
111/900

= 0.12333........

For, 111/900 when 111 is divided by 900, the quotient is
