I am looking for a c program which will do the following task

1. accept 2 integers say a , b

2. perform the division

if a = 1 and b = 7

then a/b = 0.33333333333333333333333333333333

3. output shoud be 0.(3)

or if answer is 0.111221111122111112211

then it should display 0.(1112211)

or if it is 0.142857142857142857142857

then 0.(142857)

etc...

The only safe way I can think of is to do the division yourself:

[code]

7/1.0.142857

7

30

28

14

60

56

49

1 <---- Same number we started with, so repetition from here.

[/code]

That was my first thought too, but that's not safe.

One could have a number that seems to repeat, but stops repeating beyond the accuracy of the float or double.

And how about 1/6 = 0.1(6)?

I like your idea, Eric, but it could be improved.

If we get to a number we where at before.

This is written from head with no knowledge of string funcs in C++...

[code]

int a = 1, b=6;

int* array = new int[100];

string s = "";

for(int i = 0; i < 100; ++i){

s += a / b;

a = a % b;

if(array[a] == 0)

array[a] = i;

else{ //found a match

//don't want to write this right now: :-)

s = s[0 to array[a]] + '(' + s[array[a] + 1 to end] + ')';

break;

}

}

[/code]

I think the array could be minimized to the size of b...

I also think I've done something wrong. The dot wont work with this...

Happy coding wishes

1/6 does not stop repeating. But I understand what you are saying. How far do you need to carry out the division before you give up and say that the sequence repeats forever? [b]Infinite[/b] is not an acceptable answer because the problem would never be solved.

You're right about that. In that case, maybe you should combine both methods:

String-search for a repeating pattern to suspect a repetition and try to prove it by hand-division.

....... the size is not a problem it is expected that it should work for size n... i mean if u declear size of the string 100 then it will consider only first 100 digits from fractional part... and so on

............... it will not work for many cases like

a = 11 and b = 59

then output is

0.(1864406779661016949152542372881355932203389830508474576271)

so at 2nd '1' we can not stop....

If you looked at my wrong code, and maybe my wrong statement, I think it could only repeat for max the denominator.
