I just started learning about p-adic numbers so I am having trouble with a relatively easy question:

Compute the 2-adic expansion of 2/3 and then verify your answer.

Help would be appreciated. Thanks.

Wow that's really helpful, but I would really appreciate it if you could explain the last step. How did you generate the 2 adic decimal expansion from the infinite series. Thanks.
