## cyclic numberA number with n digits, which, when multiplied by 1, 2, 3, ...,
n produces the same digits in a different order. For example, 142857
is a cyclic number: 142857 × 2 = 285714; 142857 × 3 = 428571;
142857 × 4 = 571428; 142857 × 5 = 714285; 142857 × 6 = 857142,
and so on. It has been conjectured, but not yet proven, that an infinite
number of cyclic numbers exist. ## Related categories• TYPES OF NUMBERS | |||||
