Problem No.40 @ ProjectEuler

In This task No.40, basically we need to get some digits from a large decimal fraction, then finding the multiplication of those digits.

ProjectEuler assume that the fraction is: 0.123456789101112131415161718192021222324 …. until 1000000, then we should fined the digits in positions 1, and 10, 100, 1000, 10000, 100000 and 1000000. Here is a copy of the problem screen

So to solve this I create a string variable n_list then using for loop i store the numbers from 1 to 1000000 in it as [12345678910111213141516 … 1000000], and simply get the digits I want using the list index, and Finally I calculate the needed multiplication as required. .. And we solve it. ..
