let be the series...

$$93712402......$$

Does anyone know what the general term is or how could it be calculated?..thanks.

-In fact if you are "Family's matter" fan you will know that this series appears in a chapter when Urkel is "jailed"...:grumpy: :grumpy:

I really thought you knew more math than ask such a question, eljose.

There exist innumerably many sequences that have those digits as their first members.

In what sense is that a "series"? Do you mean the sequence of digits
9, 3, 7, 1, 2, 4, 0, 2, ...

Do you have any reason to think there is a "general term" rather than just eight randomly chosen digits?

The general term is 1 apart from those terms you wrote down, obviously.
