# Write down the decimal expansions of those rational numbers in Question 1 above which have terminating decimal expansions

**Solution:**

The terminating decimal expansion means that the decimal representation or expansion terminates after a certain number of digits. A rational number is terminating if it can be expressed in the form: p/(2^{n }× 5^{m}).

(i) 13/3125 = 0*.*00416

(ii) 17/8 = 2.125

(iv) 15/1600 = 0*.*009375

(vi) 23/ (2^{3} × 5^{2}) = 23/200 = 0*.*115

(viii) 6/15 = (2 × 3)/(3 × 5) = 2/5 = 0.4

(ix) 35/50 = 0.7
