(Greetings from The On-Line Encyclopedia of Integer Sequences!)

EXAMPLE

We start from 5: 1/5 = 0.2. At the beginning we have 2 instead of 5 as first decimal digit but the second term will fix it.

In fact the next integer is 3 and 1/5 + 1/3 = 0.5333... and so on.

The sum is 0.5 3 524 414362 964900433080 ...

MAPLE

P:=proc(q) local a, b, d, n; a:=1/5; b:=ilog10(1/a)+1; d:=1/a; print(d);

for n from 1 to q do if trunc(evalf(a+1/n, 100)*10^(b+ilog10(n)+1))=d*10^(ilog10(n)+1)+n then b:=b+ilog10(n)+1; d:=d*10^(ilog10(n)+1)+n; a:=a+1/n; print(n); fi; od; end: P(10^20);
