Possible Percent Problems Part 2 (Posted on 2010-01-11) Difficulty: 3 of 5
Given whole numbers a and b we can find the ratio a/b and round it to the nearest whole percent.

A value of b is said to generate any percentage that is a possible value of a/b.

For example b=15 generates seven percentages between 0 and 50 including 27% = 4/15 and 47% = 7/15.
There is no smaller b that generates 47% but there is a smaller b (11) that generates 27% (3/11)

What is the smallest value of b such that for every percentage between 0 and 50 that it generates there is a smaller b that also generates it?
