The fraction 1/49 is a repeating decimal with a period of 42:
- 1/49 = 0.0204081632 6530612244 8979591836 7346938775 51 (42 digits repeat)
There are 42 (note that this number is the period) positive integers that are less than 49 and coprime to 49. Multiplying 020408163265306122448979591836734693877551 by each of these integers results in a cyclic permutation of the original number:
- 020408163265306122448979591836734693877551 × 2 = 040816326530612244897959183673469387755102
- 020408163265306122448979591836734693877551 × 3 = 061224489795918367346938775510204081632653
- 020408163265306122448979591836734693877551 × 4 = 081632653061224489795918367346938775510204
The repeating number can be obtained from 02 and repetition of doubles placed at two places to the right:
02 04 08 16 32 64 128 256 512 1024 2048 + ... ---------------------- 020408163265306122448979591836734693877551...0204081632...
