For j >= 3, 1 + 5*10^j = A199685(j) is in the sequence, so the sequence is infinite. - Vaclav Kotesovec, Mar 29 2018

From Robert Dawson, Apr 12 2018: (Start)

This sequence is the union of the following ten subsequences.

Terms in <angle brackets> have fewer than d digits: they are always terms of the sequence, and always appear elsewhere, as an earlier term of the same subsequence or a related subsequence. (However, the d-th terms of the subsequences are always distinct for any d > 4.) Dashes replace certain solutions to the congruences for small values of d for which certain other divisibility criteria are not met. The integers n_0(d) and n_1(d) are the even and odd zeros of n^2+3n+4 (mod 2^d) (note that by Hensel's Lemma these always exist and each is unique).

(i) p(d) satisfying 2^d| p(d) - n_0(d), 5^d |p(d):

(0,<0>,500,2500,62500,62500,4062500,14062500,...)

(ii) q(d) satisfying 2^{d-1}|q(d)-1, 5^d|q(d) for d != 3:

(0,25,-,<625>,40625,390625,2890625,12890625,...)

(iii) q(d) + 5x10^{d-1} for d != 2:

(5,-, 625,5625,90625, 890625,7890625, 62890625,...)

(iv) q'(d) satisfying 2^{d-1}|q'(d) - n_1(d), 5^d|q'(d), for d != 1,3:

(-,25,-,<625>,15625,265625,2265625,47265625,...)

(v) q'(d) + 5x10^{d-1} for d != 2:

(5,-,625,5625,65625,765625,7265625,97265625,...)

(vi) r(d) satisfying 2^d|r(d), 5^d|r(d)-1 for d >= 2

(-,76,376,9376,<9376>,109376,7109376,87109376,...) = A016090(d)

(vii) r'(d) satisfying 2^d|r'(d) - n_0(d), 5^d|r'(d)-1 for d >= 2:

(-,76,876,1876,71876,171876,1171876,<1171876>,...)

(viii)s(d) := 5x10^{d-1}+1 for d >= 4:

(-,-,-,5001,50001,500001,5000001,50000001,...) = A199685(d-1)

(ix) t(d) satisfying 2^{d-1}|t(d)-n_0(d), 5^d|t(d)-1:

(1,<1>,<1>,<1>,25001,375001,4375001,34375001,...)

(x) t(d) + 5x10^{d-1} for d >= 4:

(-,-,-,5001,75001,875001,9375001,84375001,...)

For d > 4, the sequence A301912 has at most 10 and at least 5 terms with d digits. The maximum is first attained for d=7. The minimum is first attained for d=168.

EXAMPLE

The sum of the first five cubes is 225, which ends in 5, so 5 is in the sequence.
