Step 1
A positive rational number has terminating decimal expansion iff it can be expressed as x=A10k for some A,kN
A rational number has a length-1 periodic decimal expansion iff it's not in the form above, but 10xx=9x=A10k.
Then, if x=1m we require that m=2a5b3c with a0, b0 and c1
That is, it must be a multiple of 3, and it can be a multiple of 2 and 5, with no other ' factor.
Then, if m=n!, we must have n{3,4,5,6}

According to a study by Dr. John McDougall of his live-in weight loss program at St. Helena Hospital, the people who follow his program lose between 6 and 15 pounds a month until they approach trim body weight. Let's suppose that the weight loss is uniformly distributed. We are interested in the weight loss of a randomly selected individual following the program for one month. Give the distribution of X. Enter an exact number as an integer, fraction, or decimal.f(x)= where X.μ=σ=. Find the probability that the individual lost more than 8 pounds in a month.Suppose it is known that the individual lost more than 9 pounds in a month. Find the probability that he lost less than 13 pounds in the month.

Rearranging equation
I'm reading a textbook in which an equation is rearranged and I'm failing to see how they've done it. I've tried writing it down step by step in my notebook but can't come up with the right answer. It's frustrating because I'm trying to learn calculus and differential equations - something left out of my education. After reading, I understand the idea behind calculus and what is being done and what it means, but I'm bad and working individual examples out.
It's a differential equation with the output set to 0 to find the initial value of x 0
r 0 ( 1 x 0 k 0 ) d 0 = 0
Rearranges to
x 0 = k 0 r 0 ( r 0 d 0 )
It's the part with the fraction in the brackets that's throwing me, I can sort of see where they got ( r 0 d 0 ) from.
I think to start with I need to get rid of the brackets so as:
r 0 r 0 x 0 r 0 k 0 d 0 = 0
Then I think the r 0 on the top and bottom cancel?
r 0 x 0 k 0 d 0 = 0
But I'm really not sure.

Calculate X of a math problem
I am trying to learn some more math and I got stuck on this:
0.2 X = 140
How do I calculate X?
Sorry I meant to calculate
28 X = 140
So that X = 0.2 but how do I calculate it?
