Is there name for fractions when partitioned into other bases then
decimal, in decimal base they are of course decimals but what do you
call them in binary, octal, hexa and so on?

Evidently transfer principle either did not understand how NyaN works
or mocking me and i have no clue as to why.
But below is fractions as written in NyaN bases it have some
aestatichal symmetry that 0 based bases lacks.

Binary 1=.2 1/2=.1 2/2=.2 1/4=.(1)1 2/4=. (1)2 ...
->...
Ternary 1=.3 1/3=.1 2/3=.2 1/9=.(1)1 2/9=.(1)2
-> 1/27=.(2)1 2/27=.(2)2 1/81=.(3)1 2/81=.
(3)2
Quaternary 1=.4 1/4=.1 2/4=.2 1/16=.(1)1 2/16=.(1)2
-> ...
Quinary 1=.5 1/5=.1 2/5=.2 1/25=.(1)1 2/25=.(1)2
-> ...
Senary 1=.6 1/6=.1 2/6=.2 1/36=.(1)1 2/36=. 1)2
-> ...
Septenary 1=.7 1/7=.1 2/7=.2 1/49=.(1)1 2/49=.(1)2
->...
Octal 1=.8 1/8=.1 2/8=.2 1/64=.(1)1 2/64=.(1)2
->...
Nonary 1=.9 1/9=.1 2/9=.2 1/81=.(1)1 2/81=.(1)2
->...
Decimal 1=.A 1/10=.1 2/10=.2 1/100=.(1)1 2/100=.(1)2

Feel free to fill in the blanks it is alot easier then standard
numbers systems.
