What the heck are you saying? Is the following what you're stating?
Let n be an odd integer not divisible by 5, then there are infinitely many integers of the form 10^k  1, k in N with n dividing 10^k  1.
Proof. Clearly the proposition holds for n = 1. Since, neither 2 nor 5 divides n, 10 and n are coprime. Thus by Euler's theorem, for all k in N, 10^(k.phi n) = 1 (mod n).
