### What do you call the decimals numbers that never end?

Decimal numbers that never end but that end up having a
repeating pattern are called recurring decimals or repeating
decimals.
Examples would be 1/3 = 0.33333333...
or 452/555 = 0.8144144144144144... (where 144 is the repeating
pattern).
Reaching that repeating pattern is known as becoming periodic.
Only rational numbers will have a repeating pattern. (The repeating
pattern may be 00000, as in 4/2 = 2.00000... .)
If a decimal number continues forever without having a repeating
pattern, then it is a irrational number. One example of a number
that continues forever without repeating would be π (pi) which
continues infinitely without repeating.
Pi is also referred to as a transcendental number.

### What is The value of 99.9 repeating plus 9.9 repeating plus 9 repeating?

Well 99.99999(repeating) = 100
The rigorous proof for this involves expressing 99.9999...9 as a
geometric series and then calculating the number to which is
converges, which is exactly 100. Interesting huh? Or you can think
about it like this: Since there is no number you can chose that is
between 99.9999(repeating) and 100, which is impossible for two
different numbers, they must be equal.
This also applies here: 9.9999(repeating) = 10
So 99.99(repeating) + 9.99(repeating) = 110.
However 9 repeating = Infinity.
Therefor your answer is simply infinity, as infinity is not a
number so you can not get Infinity + 110.
99.9 repeating plus 9.9 repeating plus 9 repeating =
infinity

###### Asked in Math and Arithmetic

### What is it called when numbers that cannot be written as fractions are decimals that do not end or repeat?

A non-terminating, non-repeating decimal which cannot be written
as a fraction is called an irrational number.
If the irrational number cannot be expressed the solution to a
finite polynomial it is further called a transcendental number.
√2 is the solution to x^2 = 2, so it only called an irrational
number.
e (the base of natural logarithms) can be calculated as the
value of f(x) = 1 + x/(1!) + (x^2)/(2!) + (x^3)/(3!) + ... when x =
1, ie f(1) = e, and is a transcendental number.
π (the ratio of a circle's diameter to its circumference) is
also a transcendental number.
