I know that ternary expansions are similar to decimal expansions but for example, how do you find the ternary expansion of [tex]\frac{5}{3^3}[/tex] ?

And oh, it's 5/27 not 5/9. Perhaps a better way of explaining it to me would be how to identify the coefficients [tex]a_k[/tex] such that [tex]\frac{5}{27} = \sum \frac{a_k}{3^k}[/tex] ?
