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 - A071873(n).

EXAMPLE

x = .49494949494949494948383838383838383838372727272727...

a(5) = 4 since floor(10*5*x) (mod 10) = 4.

The multiples of this constant x begin:

1*x = 0.4949494949494949494838383838383838383837...

2*x = 0.9898989898989898989676767676767676767675...

3*x = 1.484848484848484848451515151515151515151...

4*x = 1.979797979797979797935353535353535353535...

5*x = 2.474747474747474747419191919191919191919...

6*x = 2.969696969696969696903030303030303030302...

7*x = 3.464646464646464646386868686868686868686...

8*x = 3.959595959595959595870707070707070707070...

9*x = 4.454545454545454545354545454545454545454...

10*x = 4.949494949494949494838383838383838383837...

11*x = 5.444444444444444444322222222222222222221...

12*x = 5.939393939393939393806060606060606060605...

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