On Binal Fractions

Published online by Cambridge University Press:  03 November 2016

Extract

Binal Fractions. The reciprocals (1/N) of any number (N) will be termed Binal Fractions, or shortly Binals, when expressed in the binary scale. The notation used is similar to that of ordinary decimals. Thus (see table at end):

1°. A point is used to mark the beginning of the fraction.

2°. The binal (1/N) consists of a certain sequence of ciphers and units (the only digits used) to the right of the point; partly non-recurrent and partly recurrent.
