Please make a donation to keep the OEIS running. We are now in our 55th year. In the past year we added 12000 new sequences and reached 8000 citations (which often say "discovered thanks to the OEIS"). We need to raise money to hire someone to manage submissions, which would reduce the load on our editors and speed up editing.

COMMENTS

In other words, this constant satisfies x = Sum_{n>=0} ( floor(10*n*x) (mod 10) ) / 10^n.

LINKS

Table of n, a(n) for n=0..99.

FORMULA

a(n) = floor(10*n*x) (mod 10), where x = Sum_{k>0} a(k)/10^k.

a(n) = 9 - A071876(n).

EXAMPLE

x=.24792479247924792479247914691469146914691469146913...

a(8) = 9 since floor(10*8*x) (mod 10) = 9.

The multiples of this constant x begin:

12*x = 2.975097509750975097509749762976297629763...

wherein the tenths place of n*x yields the n-th digit of x.
