More Designer Decimals: The Integers and Their Geometric Extensions
Chan, O-Yeat; Smoak, James
College Mathematics Journal, v37 n5 p355-363 Nov 2006
The fraction 10000/9801 has an intriguing decimal expansion, namely 1.02030405... In this paper, we investigate the properties of this fraction via an arithmetical approach. The approach also yields a class of fractions whose decimal expansions involve higher-dimensional analogues of the integers, the n-dimensional pyramidal numbers, thereby showing both arithmetic and geometric connections.
