COMMENTS

a(n) is the number of terms in the sequence A011557 (Powers of 10) that are less than n. For n > 1, a(n) is the number of digits in n-1. - Tanya Khovanova, Jun 22 2007

FORMULA

a(n) = if n == 1 then 0 else 1 + A004216(n-1). - Reinhard Zumkeller, Dec 22 2012

a(n) = A055642(n-1) for all n > 1. a(n+1) is the number of decimal digits of n if 0 is considered to have 0 digits. - M. F. Hasler, Dec 07 2018

EXAMPLE

From M. F. Hasler, Dec 07 2018: (Start)

log_10(1) = 0, therefore a(1) = 0.

log_10(2) = 0.301..., therefore a(2) = 1.

log_10(9) = 0.954..., therefore a(9) = 1.

log_10(10) = 1, therefore a(10) = 1.

log_10(11) = 1.04..., therefore a(11) = 2.

log_10(99) = 1.9956..., therefore a(99) = 2.

log_10(100) = 2, therefore a(100) = 2.

log_10(101) = 2.004..., therefore a(101) = 3. (End)
