Original question reads: The value of (2^(-14) + 2^(-15) + 2^(-16) + 2^(-17))/5 is how many times the value of 2^(-17)?

We need to find the value of: \frac{\frac{1}{5}*(2^{-14}+2^{-15}+2^{-16}+2^{-17})}{ 2^{-17}}=\frac{\frac{1}{5}*(\frac{1}{2^{14}}+\frac{1}{2^{15}}+\frac{1}{2^{16}}+\frac{1}{2^{17}})}{\frac{1}{2^{17}}}.

if you take 2^(-17) common in the numerator, you will have 2^(-17) { 8 + 4 + 2 + 1} which equals 15. This 15 cancels with 5 in the denominator and leaves {3} 2^-(17). Slightly quicker this way i feel.
