1/3 is one divided by three is .33__3__ which is the result of you processing that fraction.

if at any point you STOP the process, you do not have an equivalency. if the process is running, fine.

Nope, it is exactly not a process.

1/3 and .333... are the same number, with different representations.

If, at any point, you start a process to determine the position of the last 3, you are misunderstanding what .333... represents.

While you may invoke a process to determine the representation of a number in a different system, this process isn't a fundamental part of the number itself.
