for any positive natural number n that has a prime factorization without the numbers {2,5}is it possible to multiply it by another number such that the result is a string of nines? note that the number of nines does not matter, what matters is that the result is just nines.

    Btw, I think I'll make this my problem of the day. It's simple math washed up a little so you don't recognize it.
