    Answer: No, Diego is not correct.

    Explanation: If we either divide 3/9 on a calculator or simplify the fraction into lowest terms, we are left with a repeating decimal of 0.333333…
    Terminating decimals are those which end with a finite number of decimals after the point. Since 3/9 does not end with a specific amount of numbers after the decimal point, it will repeat forever and is not a terminating decimal.
