i.e. RULE: A number will always be TERMINATING if the denominator of fraction in least form has NO prime factor other than 2 and 5

A. \(\frac{0.27^3}{0.09^4} = 27^3/9^4 = 3^9/3^8 = 3\) CORRECT ANSWER

B. \(\frac{0.27^2}{0.09^8} = 27^2/9^8 = 3^6/3^16 = 1/3^10\)

C. \(\frac{27^3}{0.09^6} = 27^3/9^6 = 3^9/3^12 = 1/3^3\)

D. \(\frac{0.27^3}{0.09^5} = 27^3/9^4 = 3^9/3^10 = 1/3\)

E. \(\frac{0.27^3}{0.09^9} = 27^3/9^9 = 3^9/3^18 = 1/3^9\)

Answer: Option A
