WEEKEND PROGRAMMING CHALLENGE ISSUE-10


Image

Problem:

Let 0 < (a/b) < 1 where a and b are positive integers.
Make program which enters the numbers a and b then represent a/b with as sum of numbers 1/n + 1/n2 + 1/n3… and prints the n numbers.

For instance:

input:
a = 6
b = 7
output:
2, 3, 42

i.e. 6/7 = 1/2 + 1/3 + 1/42

input:
a = 3
b = 4
output:
2, 4

as 3/4 = 1/2 + 1/4

The rules:

You can code the solution in any programming language during the weekend and have to submit it to info@olimex.com latest on Sunday May 26th.

On Monday we will upload the solutions on GitHub and review https://github.com/OLIMEX/WPC .
