Project Euler Problem 243 Solution
A positive fraction whose numerator is less than its denominator is called a proper fraction.
For any denominator, , there will be proper fractions; for example, with :
We shall call a fraction that cannot be cancelled down a resilient fraction.
Furthermore we shall define the resilience of a denominator, , to be the ratio of its proper fractions that are resilient; for example, .
In fact, is the smallest denominator having a resilience .
Find the smallest denominator , having a resilience .
