 OFFSET 2,1 COMMENTS a(n) has fewer than n digits, a special case of the fact that n integers always contain a sub(multi)set with a sum divisible by n. The single digits appear to be periodic with period 210. - T. D. Noe, Nov 05 2013 This follows from the formula. Note also that the only digits which appear are 1, 5, 7, 8, and 9. - Charles R Greathouse IV, Nov 06 2013 LINKS FORMULA a(n) consists of n-1 digits of d where d is the largest digit such that GCD(n,d)=1. a(n) = A231470(n)*(10^(n-1)-1)/9. - M. F. Hasler, Nov 09 2013 EXAMPLE a(4) = 999 because none of 9, 9+9 or 9+9+9 are divisible by 4. All integers greater than 999 (with no zeros) have the property that some digit sum is divisible by 4, e.g., 1235 has 3+1. PROG (PARI) a(n)=forstep(k=9, 1, -1, if(gcd(n, k)==1, return(10^(n-1)\9*k))) \\ Charles R Greathouse IV, Nov 05 2013 CROSSREFS Subsequence of A010785.
