FORMULA

a(n) = (1/81)*(70843*(n mod 9) + 70852*((n+1) mod 9) + 72175*((n+2) mod 9) + 69286*((n+3) mod 9) + 1491268*((n+4) mod 9) - 1348484*((n+5) mod 9) + 69529*((n+6) mod 9) + 1194565*((n+7) mod 9) - 1053095*((n+8) mod 9)), with n>=0. - Paolo P. Lava, Oct 21 2008

G.f.: -x*(9*x^8+18*x^7+174*x^6+9*x^5+157842*x^4+147*x^3+9*x^2+124875*x+1) / ((x-1)*(x^2+x+1)*(x^6+x^3+1)). - Colin Barker, Jun 25 2014

EXAMPLE

The digital roots of 1^n are 1,1,1,1,1,1,.. so 1 is the repeating decimal period for 1^n.

The digital roots of 2^n are 1,2,4,8,7,5.. so 124875 is the repeating decimal period for 2^n.

The digital roots of 3^n are 1,3,9,9,9,9,.. so 9 is the repeating decimal period for 3^n.
