Default Auxiliary fractions observation

I was watching a vedic math YouTube video on the concept of auxiliary fractions and noticed something about the prepended remainders. I am not well educated in mathematics and lack the proper terminology, so I have attached a photo. I'll do my best to explain an example and welcome any insight. Most likely a well known concept, but I'd like to learn more!

Ex: 1/39 = Auxiliary fraction first order 0.1/4
The prepended remainders 0012214= 10510
((40^6)-1)/399 = 105,025,641
*notice the 105 prepended to the repetend of 1/39.
(Also noted that 409510 = 3333334

I've worked out dozens of examples in many other bases and the same is always true. Another example is included in my photo.
