L is any integer other than a power of 10. M is any integer. Show that there is an integral power of L that begins with the sequence of digits given in M.
(In reply to Might be the solution
How do we know that
"We can find x such that
logM+x = (k-á)logL where á is approximately 0 for some k"
"Then log(M+1)+x = logM*(1+1/M)+x"
derived from what preceded?
