Find the sum of series 0.X + 0.XX + 0.XXX +… upto k terms

  • Difficulty Level : Hard
  • Last Updated : 22 Mar, 2021

Given a series of k terms, where ‘X’ is any value between 0-9 and ‘k’ is any positive integer. The task is to find the sum of given series:
 

0.X + 0.XX + 0.XXX +… up to ‘k’ terms 

Examples
 

Input: x = 4 , k = 10
Output : 4.39506

Input: x = 9 , k = 20
Output: 19.8889

 

Explanation: 
$ Result = 0.x + 0.xx + 0.xxx + ...\, up\, to\, k\, terms\\ = x/9(0.9 + 0.99 + 0.999 +... up \, to\, k\, terms)\\ = x/9[(1 - 0.1) + (1 - 0.01) + (1-0.001) + ...\, up\, \, to \, k\, terms]\\ = x/9[(1 + 1 + 1... \, upto\, k \, terms) - (1/10 + 1/100 + 1/1000 + ...\, upto\, k \, terms)]\\ = x/9[n - 0.1 * (1 - (0.1)^k)/(1 - 0.1)]\\ = x/81[9k - 1 + (10)^{-n}]\\ $
