**Yes**, the bar over the 2, means that the digit (or digits)
are repeated forever.

so 0.2 (with bar over 2) = 0.2222222222..... is decimal for 2/9 (fraction)

and 0.2 (no bar) = 0.200000000 which is 2/10

you could look at it a few ways.

0.2222222.... = 0.2 + 0.0222222.... which is greater than 0.2

or compare 2/9 & 2/10, 2/9 = 20/90 & 2/10 = 18/90

with the same denominator 20 > 18, so 2/9 > 2/10

A lower-case c with a horizontal line over it is the medical

usually means "without". These abbreviations are derived from the
Latin words "cum" (with / together) and "sine" (without). You can

the horizontal line over it.

### What is 112099 in Roman Numerals?

Since the highest letter is only M (1,000) you need to do
multiplication to get to 100,000. When you put a horizontal line
over a letter it multiplies it by 1,000 So what is 100,000/1,000?
It's 100. So you need the letter C with a horizontal line over it.
For 10,000, an X with the horizontal line. 2,000 can just be 2
regular M's and 99 is XCIX. Therefore 112,099 all together is
CX(with the line over these 2 letters)MMXCIX
