Problem - 440
For every real number $x$, let $\lfloor x\rfloor$ denote the greatest integer not exceeding $x$, and let \[f(x)=\lfloor x\rfloor(2014^{x-\lfloor x\rfloor}-1).\] The set of all numbers $x$ such that $1\leq x<2014$ and $f(x)\leq 1$ is a union of disjoint intervals. What is the sum of the lengths of those intervals?
