Please make a donation to keep the OEIS running. We are now in our 55th year. In the past year we added 12000 new sequences and reached 8000 citations (which often say "discovered thanks to the OEIS"). We need to raise money to hire someone to manage submissions, which would reduce the load on our editors and speed up editing.

COMMENTS

For n=1,2,..., the largest n-digit numbers in A178160 are 9, 99, 991, 9919, etc., so a(1)=9, a(2)=9, a(3)=1, a(4)=9, etc.

The number of digits of agreement increases as more digits are used, but the ratio (digits of agreement divided by digits used) is between 0.31 and 0.32 when the number of digits used is between a few hundred and a few thousand; this rate of convergence is not nearly as good as that of the second Trott constant (A091694).
