%F These are the numbers 9*2^(6i) and 9*5^(6i). Proof: We have 1/n = (k+ (1/9))/ 10^m so n = 9*10^m/(9k+1) so 9 divides n, say n=9x and 10 does not divide x. Then x = 10^m/(9k+1), so 9k+1 = 2^r 5^s (say) and m = max(r, s). Also 9 | 2^r 5^s - 1 (*). But phi(9) = 6, 2^6 == 1 mod 9, 5^6 == 1 mod 9 so only solution to (*) is r == s mod 6. If r >= s, say r = s + 6i then n = 9*5^(6i). Similarly if s >= r, n = 9*2^(6i). - _N. J. A. Sloane_, Sep 21 2001
