Inspired by this and this, I tried the same thing with n^5 and couldn't find an x that worked (or it is much much larger). Is there an x such that the sum of the digits of x is greater than the sum of the digits of x^5?

Well I tried the same thing with S(n)>S(n^4) and it didn't work either.

124499 works for the forth power. 1+2+4+4+9+9=29 124499**4=240250031031001002001. 2+4+2+5+3+1+3+1+1+2+1=25
