FORMULA

a(n) = Sum_{k>=1} floor(10^n/5^k). - Stephen G Cappella, Dec 13 2017

MATHEMATICA

a[n_] := Sum[Floor[10^n/5^i], {i, Floor[Log[5, 10^n]]}]; Array[f, 18] (* edited by Robert G. Wilson v, Jul 22 2012 *)

PROG

(Python)

from math import log, ceil

def a(n):

  return sum(10**n // 5**k for k in range(1, ceil(log(10, 5) * n)))
