Hello Seqfans (I hope this idea is not old hat),
We change integer abcde...mn (with a,b,c,d,e,..m,n being
digits) into integer a+b|b+c|c+d|d+e|e+...+m|m+n (where
the symbol < | > means < concatenate with >. Then we iterate.
So 2012 gives 2+0|0+1|1+2 which is 213.
213 gives 2+1|1+3 which is 34.
And 34 gives 3+4 = 7 (which we call "end result")
1) What integers are divisible by their end result?
2) 991 loops -- as 992, 993, 994, 995, 996, 997, 998, 999
(ex. 991-1810-991...); which integers > 999 also enter
in a loop?
3) which is the smallest integer growing for ever (if such
an integer exists)? I don't know the fate of 1891, for
example: 1891-91710-10881-18169-99715-181686-9971414...
Besides, is there an end pattern here: 1991
101810
11991
2101810
311991
42101810
6311991
942101810
Best, ...
É.
