The OEIS Foundation is supported by donations from users of the OEIS and by a grant from the Simons Foundation.

 Please make a donation to keep the OEIS running. We are now in our 56th year. In the past year we added 10000 new sequences and reached almost 9000 citations (which often say "discovered thanks to the OEIS"). Other ways to donate

 OFFSET 1,1 COMMENTS That is, we count the frequency of each of the ten digits 0-9 in the first n digits of pi and set a(n)=d, where d is the digit with the highest frequency. If there is a tie, we take the least digit. Surprisingly, in the first 10^8 digits, the digit 6 never has the lead, the digit 0 has the lead only 516 times, and the digit 4 has the lead over 71% of the time. Is this the behavior of a normal number? LINKS T. D. Noe, Table of n, a(n) for n=1..10000 EXAMPLE The first 20 digits of pi are 3.1415926535897932384. After the initial 3, it is clear that 1 has the lead until the 11th digit, when the third 5 occurs.
