    Dividing any number by 7 gives the repeating decimal of
    142857 which rotates about itself
    very unusual .....

    e.g.
    1/7 = .14285714285714..
    2/7 = .285714285714..
    3/7 = .428571 ...
    4/7 = .571482 ..
    ...
    6/7 = ..857142..

    4803/7 = 686.142857.. just look at the decimal
    and
    48.03/7 = 6.86142857...
    don't we just have to move the decimal place two spots ???
