# Vinculum for Repeating Decimals

Hi there!

I was just digging through the math tags thread and thought I'd ask if there is any way to put a vinculum ABOVE a number to indicate a repeating decimal.

Anyone know?

I guess you could just use \bar. For instance 3.\bar{3} in math tags gives $$3.\bar{3}$$

Ah! Thanks!

$$3.\bar{3}$$

Edit: It worked!

Wow! I thought Vinculum is a character in "Mr Norrel and Jonathan Strange " .
