    So I'm the type of person that likes doing odd math in his head as he falls asleep and for some reason last night I thought; "what happens if you divide each number by the next in line." I.E. 2/1 3/2 4/3 and so on. This was what I found.

    2/1=2
    3/2=1.5
    4/3=1.333333333r
    5/4=1.25
    6/5=1.2
    7/6=1.1666666666r
    8/7=1.142857 loop
    9/8=1.125
    10/9=1.1111111111r
    11/10=1.1
    12/11=1.09r
    13/12=1.08333333r
    14/13=1.076923 loop
    15/14=1.0714285 loop
    16/15=1.066666r

    I things backwards in my head some times so maybe this doesn't really mean anything, but I thought it was oddly cool how the decimal got smaller the higher in count you went.

    I don't know really just something I wanted to share and see if anyone else ever tried or could explain it.
