Any reciprocal 1/n where n - 1 = 2^m (and m is an integer)can be represented as a geometric series starting with 1/(n-1) and having a ratio of -1/(n-1). This is convenient because division by n is just a matter of shifting. To expand on that point, dividing by another number, q, when q's factors are made up of the sequence described earlier (3, 5, 9, 17, 33...) and the sequence 2^m (2, 4, 8, 16, 32...) is a breeze.+
