What is the cantor expansion of:(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

A. 2

B. 7

C. 19

D. 87

E. 1000

F. 1,000,000

The algorithm to solve these small problems is the most difficult for me.

The algorithm that I came up with states:

Asub(n) N! + Asub(n-1) (n-1)! +....+ Asub(2)2! + Asub(1)1!, where

Asub1 is an integer with 0 <= Asubi <= i for i = 1,2,....n,

I have tried to find other information on google, and have failed. It seems there is not much help with cantor expressions. So any help would be grateful!
