COMMENTS

This uses US nomenclature: no conjunctive 'and'; 10^10 = 'ten billion'.

This is the 'largest' counterpart to A080777, which gives the smallest positive integer with exactly n letters.

Because of the definition's size limitation, a(758) will be the largest term in this finite sequence; a(758) = 878878878878878878878878878878878878878878878878878878878878878878.

EXAMPLE

The largest numbers (<10^66) using 10 to 15 letters:

10: 10*10^9 = ten billion

11: 10*10^12 = ten trillion

12: 10*10^33 = ten decillion

13: 10*10^24 = ten septillion

14: 10*10^36 = ten undecillion

15: 10*10^63 = ten vigintillion
