Hello,
How about ?
Please advise if you can.
I am given a fraction, 1/128 and asked to give the answer as a power of 2.
If I divide this number I get 0.00078125, which I am sure is not right.
Powers to me are all about 10^ something, what I am struggling with here is how to turn a fraction into a power?
Can anyone please advise
Thanks
David
LaTex doesn't appear to be working today. Maybe it is just my reader but I will try tell you what the others are saying.
I think what the others are trying to tell you is that powers can be of any base. In particular, powers of 2 are 2^1= 1, 2^2= 4, 2^3= 8, 2^4= 16, 2^5= 32, 2^6= 64, 2^7= 128. And, of course, negatives put the number into the denominator. So 1/128= 2^?.
