How would you describe the sequence of numbers 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 1, 0, 1, 1, 1, 2, 1, 3, 1, 4, 1, 5, ...?

**Nota Bene**: You're not allowed use a computer program or code to describe it.

TopNewestHint: Apply the general formula for \(C_{10} \) for Champernowne constant. Then 10 raise to the power of respective digits, then mod 10 answer. The full working is very long and ugly. – Pi Han Goh · 1 year, 8 months agoLog in to reply

\[T_n = \lfloor 10^{n} \times C_{10} \rfloor \pmod{10}\] – Sharky Kesa · 1 year, 8 months ago

\[\large T_k = \left \lfloor 10^k \times \displaystyle \sum_{m=0}^{\infty} \sum_{n=10^{m-1}}^{10^m - 1} \dfrac {n}{10^{m(n - 10^{m - 1} + 1) + 9 \sum_{l=1}^{m-1} 10^{l-1} l}} \right \rfloor \pmod{10}\] – Sharky Kesa · 1 year, 8 months ago

Isn't \(C_{10} = 0.123456789101112131415 \ldots\)? I don't see why there'd be a problem with the relation.Log in to reply

But since OP wanted the full formula, you might want to type out that nasty double summation in full. HAHA! – Pi Han Goh · 1 year, 8 months ago

Thanks guys! I love what you guys did! I thought it'd be simpler because this was on an entrance exam for a specialized middle school. – Hobart Pao · 1 year, 8 months ago
