COMMENTS

1 contains 1 as a substring.

1 + 11 = 12 contains 2 as a substring and 11 is the least number > 1 that does that.

1 + 11 + 18 = 30 contains 3 as a substring and 18 is the least number > 11 that does that.

1 + 11 + 18 + 19 = 49 contains 4 as a substring and 19 is the least number > 18 that does that.

In the first 10000 terms the distribution of the least significant digit {0-9} is {201, 8339, 189, 185, 184, 174, 183, 176, 179, 190}. - Robert G. Wilson v, Feb 24 2018
