## Project Euler 71: Listing reduced proper fractions in ascending order of size.

#### Problem Description

Consider the fraction, n/d, where n and d are positive integers. If n<d and GCD(n,d)=1, it is called a reduced proper fraction.

If we list the set of reduced proper fractions for d ≤ 8 in ascending order of size, we get:

1/8, 1/7, 1/6, 1/5, 1/4, 2/7, 1/3, 3/8, 2/5, 3/7, 1/2, 4/7, 3/5, 5/8, 2/3, 5/7, 3/4, 4/5, 5/6, 6/7, 7/8

It can be seen that 2/5 is the fraction immediately to the left of 3/7.

By listing the set of reduced proper fractions for d ≤ 1,000,000 in ascending order of size, find the numerator of the fraction immediately to the left of 3/7.

#### Analysis

The answer will always be very close to 3/7*limit. In this case 3/7*1000000 = 428571
