Year-end appeal: Please make a donation to the OEIS Foundation to support ongoing development and maintenance of the OEIS. We are now in our 59th year, we have over 358,000 sequences, and we’ve crossed 10,300 citations (which often say “discovered thanks to the OEIS”).

COMMENTS

Related to the sum of Fibonacci-variants: Sum of the (Fibonacci numbers)/(10^n) = 0/(10^1) + 1/(10^2) + 1/(10^3) + 2/(10^4) + 3/(10^5) + 5/(10^6) + ... = 1/89. Sum of the (tribonacci numbers)/(10^(n+1)) = 1/889. Sum of the (tetranacci numbers)/(10^(n+2)) = 1/8889, etc. The denominators of those sums is the current sequence. The first one is of course 0.11111111111... = 1/9. - partially edited by Michel Marcus, Jan 27 2014

Let A be the Hessenberg matrix of the order n, defined by: A[1,j]=1, A[i,i]:=12, (i>1), A[i,i-1]=-1, and A[i,j]=0 otherwise. Then, for n>=1, a(n-1)=(-1)^(n-1)*charpoly(A,2). - Milan Janjic, Feb 21 2010

Except for the initial term, these are the 9-automorphic numbers ending in 9. - Eric M. Schmidt, Aug 17 2012

Index entries for linear recurrences with constant coefficients, signature (11,-10).

FORMULA

a(n) = (10^n)*(1000/1125) + (1/9).

a(n) = A002282(n) + 1 = (8*10^n + 1)/9.

a(n) = 10*a(n-1) - 1 with n > 0, a(0)=1. - Vincenzo Librandi, Aug 07 2010

G.f.: -(2*x-1) / ((x-1)*(10*x-1)). - Colin Barker, Feb 02 2013

a(n) = 10^n - Sum_{i=0..n-1} 10^i for n > 0. - Bruno Berselli, Jun 20 2013

EXAMPLE

a(3) = (10^3)*(1000/1125) + (1/9) = (8000/9) + (1/9) = 889.
