Step 1:

Add a decimal point to the quotient as 11 > 1 and is not divisible. By doing so we can add one 0 to the dividend to make it 10. As it can be noted that 10 is still less than 11, add another 0 to the quotient and to the dividend to make it 100.

Step 2:

Continue division until the remainder is repeated. Here we can see that the remainder 1 is repeated after two steps. Hence the answer is a non-terminating decimal number.
