If a, b, c, d and e are integers and p = 2^a3^b and q = 2^c3^d5^e, is p/q a terminating decimal?

(1) a > c

(2) b > d

a terminating decimal is any number which is divided by 2 or 5 or both only...

based on this rule, we need to find a way to eliminate 3 from the denominator..and as such..statement 2 is sufficient.

B iti is
