Denominators which have no common factors

### What are the properties of terminating decimal?

They are rational number which, in their simplest form have denominators whose only prime factors are 2 or 5.

### How do we determine whether the decimal representation of a quotient of two integers with the divisor not equal to zero will terminate or repeat?

It the divisor has any prime factor other than 2 or 5 [prime factors of 10], then the quotient will repeat. Otherwise it will terminate.

### The LCD for the fractions 13 34532 and 89 is?

The LCD is the multiple of the highest power of each prime factors of all denominators, 448,916(22x13x89x97=4x13x89x97=448916).

### Fractions with unlike denominators and no common factors to have common denominators?

Multiply them by each other.

### The LCD for the fractions 13 34 532 and 89 is?

The LCD is the LCM of all the denominators. The LCM of 13, 34, 532, and 89 is 10,463,908, which is the multiple of the highest power of prime factors from all of the given denominators (22 x 7 x 13 x 17 x 19 x 89 = 10463908). Prime factors of the denominators: 13=13; 34=2 x 17; 532 = 22 x 7 x 19; 89 = 89

### How do you factor all numerators and denominators?

Numerators and denominators are just numbers; I hope you're not asking us to factor every number. There are many different methods. I prefer to find the prime factorization; that leads to all the other factors. Some people like to use a factor tree to help visualize the prime factorization.

### Is the lcd of two tational expressions is the product of the denominators true?

When the denominators are relatively prime, that is, they have a GCF of 1.

### Does every prime number terminate or repeat?

Every prime number terminates.
