Understanding Logs

  1. Apr 27, 2004 #1
    Hi.
    How would I go from seeing the pattern in the number of nines in the first n numbers, to writing the following formulae for it:

    n*(9/10)^log_10(n)

    I don't get how to put the log in (or how it works). Sorry, it is an easy question. Please help.

    One method would be to draw a graph of the number of 9s vs the number n, then fit a curve to it. This would, I think, require a computer since this is obviously not an intuitive relationship.
