 Find Friendly Fractions! (Posted on 2004-11-24)
Can you explain the relationship between 27 and 37 that produces 1/27=0.037037037... and 1/37=0.027027027...? (That is, each number forms the other number's repeating decimal.)

Can you provide other similar examples, possibly with more or fewer digits?
