26FebMath Problem

Nothing really interesting here. I was just thinking of the numbers 1 and 7 and the word reciprocate and math. Don’t ask why, I won’t tell. Hehe.

So I challenged myself to come up with a math problem using those numbers and the result should be somewhat related to secret. Try to solve the math problem I created to understand what I mean.

Reciprocal of 7, multiplied by 1000, round off to the nearest one (1).

I love math!
