 Jan 30 accepted Integer Y with N Repeating Digits of X? Jan 30 comment Integer Y with N Repeating Digits of X? Thanks @Tim. I'm just having trouble understanding how ganshie8's answer translates to code :) Jan 30 comment Integer Y with N Repeating Digits of X? @lulu got it! Thanks! Sorry, multiplying by X seems obvious now. If you post this as an answer I'll accept. Bonus points if you can explain how it's working in simple terms :) Nah, not anything I want to use practically in programming--just wanted to understand how something easy to do with strings could be done with math! Jan 30 comment Integer Y with N Repeating Digits of X? @ganeshie8 I'm embarrassed to say that I don't know how ∑ is used :) Jan 30 comment Integer Y with N Repeating Digits of X? @lulu this seems to work perfectly for 1, but how would I do the same for 2 or 3?

I'm coming from a programming background with little math. Jan 23 comment Realistic Example of Power-Law Distribution? Thanks! First paragraph makes complete sense, but what's "a" and what's "C"? I guess I learn more by example. Is there any way you could take a guess at C and a for this graph? Jan 22 awarded Student Jan 22 asked Realistic Example of Power-Law Distribution?
