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 56th year, we are closing in on 350,000 sequences, and we’ve crossed 9,700 citations (which often say “discovered thanks to the OEIS”).

(Greetings from The On-Line Encyclopedia of Integer Sequences!)
A163670 Numbers whose English name (excluding spaces and hyphens) is written with only straight line segments (chisel strokes). 4
5, 9, 10, 11, 12, 15, 19, 20, 25, 29, 50, 55, 59, 90, 95, 99 (list; graph; refs; listen; history; text; internal format)



There are no elements in the sequence beyond 99 because of curves in writing hUnDReD, thOUSanD, milliOn, BilliOn, and so forth. If one counts the segments (chisel strokes) then 29 is the unique fixed point of that derived sequence.

Specifically, these are the numbers whose names use only the letters A, E, F, H, I, K, L, M, N, T, V, W, X, Y, and Z. [From Franklin T. Adams-Watters, Aug 06 2009]


Table of n, a(n) for n=1..16.


a(1) = 5 because FIVE is the smallest integer whose English name is written with only straight line segments. 6 is not in the sequence because the letter S has curves. a(2) = 9 because NINE is the next integer whose English name is written with only straight line segments.


Cf. A002963, A005589.
