Hey All! Can someone please help me in doing this question? a) find the repetend for the fraction 1/103 b) find the five largest fractions amongst n/103 for n = 1,2,3.....,102 whose repetends have the cyclic order as the repetend for 1/103. c)find three fractions amongst n/103 for n = 1,2,3,....,102 whose repetends do not have the same cyclic order. d) represent the three different repetends in part c as A,B,C. Determine which of these repetends each of the fractions n/103 has for n = 1,2,3,....,10 and 93,94,95...,102. what pattern do you notice?

Carefully divide 1 by 103. We find a decimal with a 34digit repeating cycle. [color=beige]. . [/color] Quote:
Read along the cycle and pick out the five largest 6digit (or 9digit) decimals. [color=beige]. . [/color] Multiply each by 103: [color=beige]. . [/color] Quote:
