I am working on a problem that involves the following:
One must find three numbers, integers and/or decimals, that multiply to ten.
Here's the catch:
You must use all integers, $0-9$, in the answer! So $1\times 2\times 5$ does not work.
I do not want the answer.
Instead, I ask if anyone has any ideas to which I can get as close to 10 as possible. The hint in the problem is that you cannot get to ten exactly, but close to it.
Right now, I have $1\times 2\times 5.0346789 = 10.0...$ Again, I do not want the answer, only a mathematical way to get to the answer. I cannot determine why I would be assigned this problem if it had no relation to mathematics.
Decimals ($\rm0.xxx$) count as use of the $0$, and you can place the zero at the end ($\rm x.xxx0$), too
