The OEIS is supported by the many generous donors to the OEIS Foundation.



Year-end appeal: Please make a donation to the OEIS Foundation to support ongoing development and maintenance of the OEIS. We are now in our 59th year, we have over 358,000 sequences, and we’ve crossed 10,300 citations (which often say “discovered thanks to the OEIS”).

Each member of this sequence appears to also be a factor of the number formed by concatenating (n+4), (n+3), (n+2) and (n+1) in that order. When evaluating concat((n+4),(n+3),(n+2),(n+1)) - concat((n-4),(n-3),(n-2),(n-1)) for members of this sequence the difference appears to always be a number of the form 8(0)...6(0)...4(0)...2 with the same number of zeros following the 8, 6 and 4. The member will be a factor of this number. Terms for this sequence can be produced by factoring numbers of this form. Let z=the number of zeros in one of the segments of a number d of the form 8(0)...6(0)...4(0)...2. Find the divisors of d. All divisors which are not of length z+1 are not members of this sequence and those that are of length z+1 are possible candidates and should be tested. For example let d = 8000000000000000006000000000000000004000000000000000002. z=17. The divisors of d are numerous, but only two are z+1 (18) digits long: 138599925259848671 and 27719985051 9697342. Testing these candidates confirms that the first one is a member of this sequence.

a(2)=109 because 109 is a factor of 105106107108.
