COMMENTS

In other words, this constant satisfies x = Sum_{n>=0} ( floor(10*n*x) (mod 10) ) / 10^n.

The sixth selvage number is equal to the complement of the fifth selvage number: s_6 = 1 - s_5.

FORMULA

a(n) = floor[10*(n*x)] (Mod 10), where x = sum{k=1..inf} a(k)/10^k.

a(n) = 9 - A071793(n).

EXAMPLE

x=0.50505050505050505051616161616161616161627272727272...

a(7) = 5 since floor(10*(7*x)) (Mod 10) = 5.

The multiples of this constant x begin:

1*x = 0.5050505050505050505161616161616161616163...

2*x = 1.010101010101010101032323232323232323233...

3*x = 1.515151515151515151548484848484848484849...

4*x = 2.020202020202020202064646464646464646465...

5*x = 2.525252525252525252580808080808080808081...

6*x = 3.030303030303030303096969696969696969698...

7*x = 3.535353535353535353613131313131313131314...

8*x = 4.040404040404040404129292929292929292930...

9*x = 4.545454545454545454645454545454545454546...

10*x = 5.050505050505050505161616161616161616163...

11*x = 5.555555555555555555677777777777777777779...

12*x = 6.060606060606060606193939393939393939395...

wherein the tenths place of n*x yields the n-th digit of x.
