(Greetings from The On-Line Encyclopedia of Integer Sequences!)
A048940 Starting position of the first occurrence of a string of at least n '9's in the decimal expansion of Pi. 19
5, 44, 762, 762, 762, 762, 1722776, 36356642, 564665206, 20148132310, 27014073304, 897831316556, 5758910552709, 5758910552709 (list; graph; refs; listen; history; text; internal format)



a(10) > 11*10^9 - 1. - Eric W. Weisstein, Jul 20 2013

a(15) > 22*10^12. - Dmitry Petukhov, Jan 29 2020

Pi digits 3,1,4,... are indexed 0,1,2,... Note that this is different from other sequences such as A049522, A084073 which use indices 1,2,3,... For example, the position of the curious accumulation of six 9s is called 762 here; the same position is called 763 in A049522, A084073. - Jeppe Stig Nielsen, Aug 21 2017
