how do you find the n'th digit in a quotient of division
Posted 31 August 2009 - 03:13 AM
Here is an example of what I mean.
q = "0.2893798172383982716"
other then doing long division how do you find, say, 7 in q. Or rather is there a formula for finding, if n = 5 the outcome would then be 3 in q. or if n = 13 the outcome would be 8.
why would i want to do this? just cause, i guess, asking and looking at things.

I can't imagine any situation where this would actually be a performance bottleneck.
