4 a) What are the properties of the decimal expansion of a rational number?
b) Write 0.191919… as a fraction of integers.
c) Give the decimal expansion of a rational number between 7.86 and 7.87.
d) Give the decimal expansion of an irrational number between 7.86 and 7.87.
5) Factor the expression 10x + 35 .

6) Simplify the fractions as much as possible. If a fraction is in lowest terms, say so.
Remember, you can only cancel if the same quantity factors from the top and the bottom
