Find Friendly Fractions! (Posted on 2004-11-24) Difficulty: 2 of 5
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?

Nice comment.

The only objection that I have is the comment title which seems to give away the suggested solution in the title itself and this is not permissible in terms of the provisions governing the website (see FAQ above the chatterbox).
