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).
