CHAP, xxj PROPERTIES OF THE DIGITS OF NUMBERS. 457 Moret-Blanc23 proved that 1, 8, 17, 18, 26, 27 are the only numbers equal | to the sum of the digits of their cubes. C. Berdelle*230 considered the last n digits of numbers, in particular of 5*. E. Ces&ro24 noted that the sum of the pth powers of ten consecutive integers ends with 5 unless p is a multiple of 4, when it ends with 3. wt F. de Rocquigny25 noted that if a number of n digits equals the sum of the 2n~l products of its digits taken 1, 2, . . ., n at a time, its final n—1 digits are all 9. E. Ces£ro26 considered the period of the digits of rank n in powers of 5. Lists2*80 have been given of squares formed by the nine digits > 0, or the ten digits, not repeated. 0. Kessler27 gave a table of divisors of numbers formed by repeating a given set of digits a small number of times. T. C. Simmons270 noted that, if the sum of the digits of n is 10, that of 2n is 11 unless each digit of n is <5 or two are 5. For 4 digits the numbers of each type are counted. J. S. Mackay28 treated the last subject. E. Lemoine29 considered numbers like A = 8607004053 such that, if a is the number derived by reversing the digits of A, the sum A +a = 12111011121 reverses into itself. / M. d'Ocagne30 considered the sum a"(N) of the digits of the first N integers. If Nf = a9-lW+ . . . +arlO+ao and d=a3,-10p~l, then Hence The number of digits in 1,. . ., N is next paper. M. d'Ocagne31 noted that, in writing down the natural numbers 1, where N is composed of n digits, the total number of digits wi n(tf +1) - In, where ln = 1 . . . 1 (to n digits). E. Barbier310 asked what is the 101000th digit written if the series of natural numbers be written down. MNouv. Ann.
