0 Posted February 9, 2013 3333....3 is 3*1111....1 The number consisting of only ones must be a multiple of 3 and 1111...1. For it to be a multiple of 111....1, it must be a multiple of 100 1's long. The first multiple of 100 divisible by 3 is 300. So, the number is 111...1 with 300 1's. 1 Share this post Link to post Share on other sites
