To find the decimal equivalent, we divide 5 by 8: 625 . 000 . 5 8 4.800 .200 .160 .040 .040 .000 ANSWER: 0.625 5. Find the prime factorization of: 360 To find the prime factorization, we repeatedly divide the number by the smallest integer that divides evenly into the number. In this case, we begin by dividing by 2: 360 = 2 * 180 Now, we can divide 180 by 2: 360 = 2 * 2 * 90 Now, we can divide 90 by 2: 360 = 2 * 2 * 2 * 45 Now, we can divide 45 by 3: 360 = 2 * 2 * 2 * 3 * 15 Now, we can divide 15 by 3: 360 = 2 * 2 * 2 * 3 * 3 * 5 ANSWER: 2 * 2 * 2 * 3 * 3 * 5 6. Simplify: 2 3 10 10 ; please see section 0.7 for further review. STEP 1: Since the denominators are the same we can add the numerators and then put that over the common denominator.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
