%N Concatenate sum of digits of previous term and product of digits of previous term, starting with 8.

%C Each term is created by calculating the sum of the digits of the previous number, and the product of its digits. The results are concatenated to give the new number. Starting with 8, the second number is 88. The third number is generated as follows: 8+8=16, 8x8=64, which gives 1664. Continuing this way, the 7th number in this sequence becomes 88, equal to the second number of the sequence. Therefore, the pattern 88, 1664, 17144, 17112, 1214, ... repeats itself indefinitely.
