Display a number...
Hey guys, i'm stuck with this question and could need your help:
"Display the number 2008 as the sum of natural numbers, so that the addition of the reciprocal values of their summands equals 1."
Thanks a lot, i just don't know what to do with this question...

is that what you mean?
$\displaystyle
\left\{ \begin{gathered}
\sum\limits_{n = 1}^N {x_n = 2008} \hfill \\
\sum\limits_{n = 1}^N {\frac{1}
{{x_n }} = 1} \hfill \\
\end{gathered} \right.$

hey peritus, thanks for your quick answer
unfortunatly, i don't really know this notation...
to clarify my post, i was looking for a couple of numbers which add up to 2008;
the sum of the inverses of these numbers are supposed to equal 1...
