Hello SeqFans,
35,32,27,24,22,20,13,11,7,5,3,1,1,0
35 hits 0 when successively subtracting its own "digit-trail":
a b c
35-3=32
32-5=27
27-3=24
24-2=22
22-2=20
20-7=13
13-2=11
11-4= 7
7-2= 5
5-2= 3
3-2= 1
1-0= 1
1-1= 0 <- hit
You'll get column b reading column a digit by digit.
1) What would be the sequence S of such "hitting-zero" integers?
I guess S starts like this:
S = 0,1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,10,19,20,22,...
2) Given an integer I, is it possible to say if I is part of S
without computing every term of its "digit-trail"?
Best,
É.
