EXAMPLE

Term #30419 of our sequence is 30419. The positions of the appended "thirtythousandfourhundrednineteen" in fp are letters #999990 to #1000022. Letters #1000000 - #1000004 of fp are S, A, N, D, F. At 999999, all numbers up to 999999 (and no numbers beyond) have been used. Therefore a(1000000) - a(1000004) are 1000006 (one million Six), 1001000 (one million one thousAnd), 1000000 (oNe million), 1000100 (one million one hunDred), and 1000004 (one million Four).
