 Annual Appeal: Please make a donation to keep the OEIS running. In 2018 we replaced the server with a faster one, added 20000 new sequences, and reached 7000 citations (often saying "discovered thanks to the OEIS"). Other ways to donate

 Hints (Greetings from The On-Line Encyclopedia of Integer Sequences!)
 A125520 a(n) = maximal difference between two distinct n-digit with property that when one of them is typed into a calculator and rotated 180 degrees, the other one is seen. 0
 3, 75, 825, 8835, 89235, 898335, 8992335, 89983335, 899923335, 8999833335, 89999233335, 899998333335, 8999992333335 (list; graph; refs; listen; history; text; internal format)
 OFFSET 1,1 LINKS FORMULA If n is greater than 2 and even, than a(n) is 8 followed by (n / 2) - 2 nines followed by another 8 followed by (n / 2) - 1 threes followed by 5. If n is greater than 2 and odd, than a(n) is 8 followed by (n / 2) - 1.5 nines followed by a 2 followed by (n / 2) - 1.5 threes followed by a 5. EXAMPLE a(2) = 75. If someone types 91 into a calculator and rotates it 180 degrees, they will get 16. 91 - 16 = 75. It is easy to check that no larger differences can be obtained.
