Table of n, a(n) for n=1..105.

FORMULA

a(n) = floor(10^floor(1+log10(n-1))/n). After 10^k terms the number of times m will have appeared will be about 10^(k+1)/(9*m*(m+1)), e.g., 1 will appear just over 55.5% of the time. - Henry Bottomley, May 11 2001

a(n) = A000030(floor(A011557(k)/n)) for k >= A004218(n). - Reinhard Zumkeller, Feb 27 2011

MATHEMATICA

f[n_] := RealDigits[1/n, 10, 12][[1, 1]]; Array[f, 105]
