COMMENTS

Note that 1/20 + 1/50 = 0.70 > 70 is a "sliding number" though 0.70 is usually written 0.7 So any "sliding number" G produces an infinite chain of others : G*10, G*100, G*1000, etc. The first number in such a chain is called "primitive".
Another characterization of the sliding numbers is numbers of the form a + 10^k/a where a  10^k (k >= 0).  David W. Wilson, Mar 09 2005
The lefthand side is (a+b)/ab and we can cancel out (a+b), so we are looking for all (a+b) with a and b positive integers, such that a*b is a (nonnegative integral) power of 10, sorted by (a+b). It follows for example that for a given k, the smallest (a+b) with that k is 2*sqrt(10^k) (equality when k i even, unless we also require a!=b).  Christopher Landauer, Mar 10 2005

EXAMPLE

1/4 + 1/25 = 0.29 > 29 is a "sliding number"
1/8 + 1/125 = 0.133 > 133 is a "sliding number"
1/2 + 1/5 = 0.7 > 7 is a "sliding number"
