## Fun with mathematics: Dividing one by 998001 yields a surprising result

There's all sorts of magic to be had with numbers, and many mathematicians have made entire careers in finding these little tricks that are mostly useless, but fun anyway.

Unfortunately, most calculators are going to truncate the results of this trick, but if you manage to get a hold of a calculator that can handle the numbers, you'll find that dividing 1 by 998001, you get all three-digit numbers from 000 to 999 in order (except for 998).

As always, there is a Youtube video that explains it.
