COMMENTS

A companion sequence stemming from the some of the elements excluded by A156703. The sequence is highly volatile and infinite...as with A156703 the subset elements are encountered in numerical order. a(n) will start with the digit 9 for n>4 I believe. Entries can grow quite large very quickly. Each entry will be encountered once, and they will end in an even digit.
The number of digits of a(n) is given by A002329.  Michel Marcus, Aug 19 2015

FORMULA

a(n) = the periodic part of the decimal expansion of (A045572(n+1)1) / A045572(n+1).  Doug Bell, Aug 17 2015


EXAMPLE

1/2=0.5 nonrepeating, so exclude from sequence.
2/3=0.6 repeating, so a(1)=6.
5/6=0.833 (repeating) but has "8" prefix ahead of repeating "3" so exclude from sequence (decimal expansion not purely periodic)
6/7=0.857142 repeating so a(2)=857142.
