Could someone please help me with this problem which I have suffered many hours in front of? I never came to any solution which totally satisfied me, and I'm guessing I'm on the wrong track...(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

A number x in the interval [0,1] is called "satanic" if the decimal expansion of x contains somewhere the sequence 666.

Show that "almost all" numbers in [0,1] are satanic, i.e., that m([0,1]\S)=0 where S is the set of satanic numbers, and m is the Lebesgue measure.
