Homework Help: math

Posted by patti help on Wednesday, March 7, 2007 at 8:26pm.

describe general rule for which fraction that have decimal forms that terminate and which have decimals that repeat and list prime factorizations for each: 1/2 , 1/3, 1/4, 1/5,1/6,1/7,1/8,1/9,1/10,1/11,1/12
how do I do these problems?

I searched Google under the key words "fractions to decimals" to get these possible sources:

http://math2.org/math/general/arithmetic/fradec.htm

Prime factorization is finding factors (other than 1) that will multiply to give you the particular fraction:

1/2 * 1/2 = 1/4

I hope this helps. Thanks for asking.
