Entertaining number sequence

I found out, while working on a textbook, that the decimal value of 12/12.12 is 0.9900 9900 9900 9900 … forever and ever.

I know repeating, non terminating fractions are not new to anyone in math, but I found this particularly satisfyingly interesting. Anyone have any of their own to share?
