In Exercises 27- 30 , copy the given ta- ble onto your homework paper. In each row, place a check mark in each column that is appropriate. That is, if the num- ber at the start of the row is rational, place a check mark in the rational col- umn. Note: Most (but not all) rows will have more than one check mark. 27.

Section 1.1 Number Systems Version: Fall 2007 1.1 Solutions 1. 80 = 2 · 2 · 2 · 2 · 5 3. 180 = 2 · 2 · 3 · 3 · 5 5. 128 = 2 · 2 · 2 · 2 · 2 · 2 · 2 7. 32 = 2 · 2 · 2 · 2 · 2 9. There are three decimal places, so . 648 = 648 1000 = 81 125 . 11. There are three decimal places, so . 240 = 240 1000 = 6 25 . 13. There are two decimal places, so . 14 = 14 100 = 7 50 . 15. There are three decimal places, so . 888 = 888 1000 = 111 125 . 17. Let x = 0 . 27 . Then 100 x = 27 . 27 . Subtracting on both sides of these equations 100 x = 27 . 27 x = . 27 yields 99 x = 27 . Finally, solve for x by dividing by 99: x = 27 99 = 3 11 . 19. Let x = 0 . 24 . Then 100 x = 24 . 24 . Subtracting on both sides of these equations 100 x = 24 . 24 x = . 24 yields 99 x = 24 . Finally, solve for x by dividing by 99: x = 24 99 = 8 33 ....
