 OFFSET 0,1 COMMENTS Digits are all in {5,6,7,8,9} after 2nd term. The other limit, related to odd n, is in A158625. The first digit of the backward value of 5^n is always a(0)=5. The second digit is a(-1)=2 from n=2 on. The third digit is a(-2)=6 for all even n >= 4. The fourth digit is a(-3)=5 for n=6+4k, k >= 0. The fifth digit is a(-4)=6 for n=10+8k, k >= 0. The 6th digit is a(-5)=7 for n=10+16k, k >= 0. The 7th digit is a(-6)=9 for n=10+32k, k >= 0. LINKS Robert Israel, Table of n, a(n) for n = 0..999 EXAMPLE 5^3 = 125 so the backward value is 0.521, 5^10 = 9765625, so the backward value is 0.5265679. The upper limit of all values is a constant, which appears to be 0.5265679578796997657885576975995789586775656...
