**Magic of Numbers **

**Magical 1**

3 x 37 = 111

33 x 3367 = 111,111

333 x 333667 = 111,111,111

3333 x 33336667= 111,111,111,111

33333 x 3333366667= 111,111,111,111,111

333333 x 333333666667 = 111,111,111,111,111,111

Consider the L.H.S of the above numbers. The number of 3s in both the numbers are same and 6 is one less than the number of 3 and there is only one 7. Then in the final product, N would appear three times the number of threes in the first number on the LHS.

**6 when multiplied with 7 give 4 and 2 **

6 x 7 = 42

66 x67 = 4422

666 x 667 = 444222

6666 x 6667 = 44442222

**For multiplication such as the above:**

The number of digits in both the numbers is same, the 2^{nd} number has one 6 less than the number of 6’s the 1^{st} number has .

The number of 4’s and 2’s is equal to the number of 6’s in the 1^{st} number

**Cyclic numbers **

142857 is called as the cyclic number, since its digits are rotated around when multiplied by any number from 1 to 6

142857 x 1 = 142857

142857 x 5= 714285

142857 x 4= 571428

142857 x 6 = 857142

142857 x 2= 285714

142867 x 3 = 428571

The same method helps us calculating fractions involving 7 in denominator

We know 1/7 = 0.142857

Thus 2/7 will be a value close to 0.28 and directly we will write exact answer as numbers repeat in cyclic order as shown in diagram. Hence exact answer will be 0.285714

Similarly 3/7 will be a value close to 0.42 and directly we will write exact answer as numbers repeat in cyclic orderas shown in diagram. Hence exact answer will be 0.428571

Similarly 4/7 will be a value close to 0.56 and directly we will write exact answer as numbers repeat in cyclic orderas shown in diagram. Hence exact answer will be 0.571428

Similarly 5/7 will be a value close to 0.7 and directly we will write exact answer as numbers repeat in cyclic orderas shown in diagram. Hence exact answer will be 0.714285

Similarly 6/7 will be a value close to 0.84 and directly we will write exact answer as numbers repeat in cyclic orderas shown in diagram. Hence exact answer will be 0.857142
