Find the smallest number such that if its rightmost digit is placed at its left end, the new number so formed is precisely 50% larger than the original number.

Not quite. In both cases placing the last digit at the left end will not create a 50% increase:
2.85714=>42.8571
.285714=>4.28571

By the same token 1.@^^$#...^Z=>Z1.@^^$#...^
