COMMENTS

The rules of arithmetic used in A169916, A169917, A169918 have very strange consequences. Many of the familiar laws fail. For instance, the arithmetic in A169916 is not associative: 10*(9*2) = 10*1 = 21 != (10*9)*2 = 9*2 = 1.

EXAMPLE

a(17) = 17*17 = 244:

...17

...17

-----

...84 (7*7 = 7+7 mod 10 = 4, 7*1 = 7+1 mod 10 = 8)

..28.

-----

..244

(The rule for "adding" the columns is to multiply mod 10: 8+8 = 8 * 8 mod 10 = 4. Blanks are ignored)
