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:

8*x = 1.983398339833983398339833175317531753175...

9*x = 2.231323132313231323132312322232223222322...

10*x = 2.479247924792479247924791469146914691469...

12*x = 2.975097509750975097509749762976297629763...

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