Homework Help: math

Posted by Lindsey on Tuesday, August 29, 2006 at 4:27pm.

Something times something equals 97

Are you supposed to factor 97 as the product of integers?
We need a little more info to help you.

If you are expecting integer results, wait no more as 97 is a prime number. Therefore, no two integers have a product of 97.

If you are not looking for integer answers, there are an infinite number of answers using fractions.

For instance, 384(1/2) = 197

Do you have any other constraint that applys to the problem?

For the non integer example I meant
194(1/2) = 97/
