You know that 1/7 = I.142857 bar. Can you predict what the decimal expansions of 2/7, 3/7, 4/7, 5/7, 6/7 are, without actually doing the long division? If so, HOWAND WHY?

This can be done using multiplication. But there is no need to do that even. Directly you can observe the decimal part of 1/7.
To multiply 2(1/7), we shift the decimal two places to the right.
Similarly, to multiply 2(1/7), we shift the decimal point, three places to the right.
The same can be done for the others.
This happens since 1/7 is recurring and hence you will get the same remainders again and again after a certain pattern.
