Solving Constant Product for price
The constant product is used in decentralized finance. It is used to calculate how much someone gets for currency $Y$ when giving funds of currency $X$. $X$ and $Y$ indicate the size of funds in the corresponding currencies, $z$ stands for the amount of funds of currency $X$ given into the pool, $a$ stands for the amount of funds received in currency $Y$. $p$ is the price paid for the transaction.
$k = X * Y$
$a = Y  k / (X + z)$
$p = z / a$
Now my question is: How much does someone have to give to exactly receive $p$?
Example:
$X = 100, Y_1 = 50, Y_2 = 50, z = 10$
$k = 100 *(50+50)$
$a = (50+50)  10000 / (100+10) = 9.09...$
$p = 9.09... / 10 = 1.09...$
