How I thought of it was: just taking the product of the first two numbers, and carry the solution through so you end up with: 1/10 of 1000 which is 100. A bit more in depth explanation: 1/2 * 2/3 * 3/4 * 4/5 * 5/6 * 6/7 * 7/8 * 8/9 * 9/10 * 1000 ^ is basically how to look at this, and we can see that 1/2 * 2/3 = 1/3 1/3 * 3/4 = 1/4 1/4 * 4/5 = 1/5 ... 1/9 * 9/10 = 1/10 1/10 * 1000 = 100 That's how I arrived at the solution.At 22 February 2013, 3:48:45 user Hemal wrote:   [reply @ Hemal]It is 100.
