and

## Problem 1 Solution

Write as an addition of a series of fractional powers of and then again as a series of simplified fractions.

Powers of :

Simplified Fractions:

## Problem 2 Solution

Find the sum of

## Problem 3 Solution

Try to find the product of

without performing the actual multiplication.

The denominator of each fraction cancels with the numerator of the fraction following it.

The denominator in cancels the numerator in etc.

The only 2 numbers that don't cancel are the numerator in and the denominator in leaving

We can also rearrange the numerators to make 4 of the fractions equivalent to

## Problem 4 Solution

Solve the equation

## Problem 5 Solution

Solve the equation

## Problem 6 Solution

Find a Rational number in between

a. and

and

There is no fraction with a denominator of between and .

Converting denominators gives and

There is a fraction in between and ,

namely

This is just one of infinitely many fractions between and .
