I would like to be able to demonstrate this on paper, with n=5 ish. So no computers and have a result in 10 minutes or as quick as possible. I know am exact figure is impossible, so I was wondering wat was the best method?

comment The number 12407 is the smallest interesting number.
@motl737 That's where I heard it, I wondered interesting was a defined term, or whether this was just a list of what's interesting about various numbers.

That was my question, what is an interesting number. I found a brief history of Neil Sloane which described it.

I have found an answer. Neil Sloane originally started collecting numbers, later, others started sending him their own interesting integers which was published. These are not publishes online at [ The On-Line Encyclopedia of Integer Sequences® (OEIS®)][1] The 12407 mentioned is the first not to appear in this list. There is no published set of rules as to what an interesting number is. [1]: oeis.org/Seis.html

@ZevChonoles I disagree. it is obviously a question, if you are saying there is no such term as an interesting number then that's fine, but as a question, it is concise and understandable.

@ZevChonoles Why isn't this a real question?

comment Is it possible to write a number in a base of less than 1?
Aye, it was a non-integer base, I was wondering now such a thing might be represented, if it could be.

Thanks, I hadn't imagined a complex base, or a variable radix base. It's got awesome possibilities, few of which I am clever enough to figure out. I think I have a new "Maths Fad" for a few weeks. i really like the idea of a Taylor series-esk base for using in wave filtering.

@MarkBennet I hadn't considered that. I'm not sure what would happen at the moment.

@DrakeClarris Hi Drake, I did, I found a post already discussing that very idea.
