If the initial term is omitted, might be called eightful (or hateful) numbers!

FORMULA

a(n) = 10*a(n-1) + 8, with a(0)=0. - Paolo P. Lava, Jan 23 2009

a(n) = 11a(n-1) - 10a(n-2), with a(0)=0, a(1)=8. G.f.: 8x/((1-x)(1-10x)).  - Jaume Oliver Lafont, Feb 03 2009

a(n) = A178635(n) / A002283(n). - Reinhard Zumkeller, May 31 2010

a(n) = a(n-1) + 8*10^(n-1), with a(0)=0. - Vincenzo Librandi, Jul 22 2010

a(n) = 8*A002275(n) = A002283(n) - A002275(n). - Carauleanu Marc, Sep 03 2016

From Ilya Gutkovskiy, Sep 03 2016: (Start)

E.g.f.: 8*(exp(9*x) - 1)*exp(x)/9.

a(n) = floor(8*10^n/9). (End)

EXAMPLE

Curious multiplications:

9*9 + 7 = 88;

98*9 + 6 = 888;

987*9 + 5 = 8888;

9876*9 + 4 = 88888;

98765*9 + 3 = 888888;

987654*9 + 2 = 8888888;

9876543*9 + 1 = 88888888;

98765432*9 + 0 = 888888888;

987654321*9 - 1 = 8888888888;

9876543210*9 - 2 = 88888888888. - Philippe Deléham, Mar 09 2014
