As you call it"the original solution"does work,doesn't give you any decimal just because is the correct equation.If you can't construct such a simple one by your own,at least try to do the math by puting the given number at "x" place and you'll find out,that everything is o'k.Personaly.for me is more fun to solve it digit by digit,because is to fast with the equation.

I found almost but because of my lack of understanding on question.. I thought 5 digit number including '1'.

so I ended up till

28571

and 12857

If I would have tried for next number.. ie 6th I had found the answer.. Anyway misunderstanding is also a type of FAIL :mellow:

Spoiler for the last digit of the five digit number is 7

Very cleaver guys. I tried to not use a calculator, so I made it a little harder for me. I assumed the answer was "55555" to start and did the math and it was close but not right.

Then I tried "33333" and that was close and not right, but it showed me the answer was between the two.

Then I tried "44444" and that was closer and then I knew the answer was between 44444 and 33333.

I got into the right ballpark, but I cheated and looked at this point. At least I narrowed to 11111 possible answers. :D

which, 11111, is consequently the only 5 digit number thats solution is exactly the same when you ad a 1 to the beginning or end. LAUGH!!!
