Problem
When a student multiplied the number by the repeating decimal, where and are digits, he did not notice the notation and just multiplied times Later he found that his answer is less than the correct answer. What is the -digit number
Solution 1
We are given that from which ~MRENTHUSIASM
Solution 2
It is known that and
Let We have Expanding and simplifying give so
~aop2014 ~BakedPotato66 ~MRENTHUSIASM
Solution 3 (Similar to Solution 2)
We have Expanding both sides, we have Subtracting from both sides, we have Multiplying both sides by we have Thus, the answer is
By letting this solution is similar to Solution 2. In this solution, we solve for as a whole.
