Well, let's put some facts together:

0.777... = 7/9.

You claim that 0.777... is a terminating decimal.

Therefore, er, oh. Wait.

I thought that these two facts would entail that you claim 7/9 is also
a terminating decimal, but obviously not.

It's no news that I find it a shame you are in a classroom teaching
mathematical topics when you are incapable of very basic mathematical
reasoning.

You should be removed from the classroom.

This is not a vindictive comment, but a simple statement of fact. No
person capable of basic logical reasoning could fail to see your
irrelevant (and obviously false) claim to cover for the fact that you
cannot apply a definition you agreed to and prove what you say is
true.

Such an ignorant fool like you should not be allowed to teach
shame on them if they are not, and shame on them every day they allow
you to pretend to understand mathematics.

Call that dirty if you wish, but as far as I'm concerned, it's a
pretty uncontroversial judgment.
