 Pi repeats (Posted on 2012-02-29)
The Feynman point is a pattern in pi where the digit 9 repeats six times in a row. The 762nd to 767th digits are all 9. Here is pi to the Feynman point. Each row has 50 digits.

1. Find three times where a digit repeats three times consecutively before the Feynman point.

2. The number 999 repeats twice consecutively in 999999. Find two 3-digit numbers that repeat twice consecutively before the Feynman point.

3. Find two 5-digit numbers that appear twice in different places before the Feynman point.

4. In one of the first 7 blocks of 100 digits, there is a 5-digit number ABCDE where ABCDE, ABCD, and BCDE all appear in different places in the same block. Which block of 100 digits is it, and what is ABCDE?

5. The number 999999 is of the form AABBAB, where A=B=9. Find a number of the form AABBAB before the Feynman point where A≠B.

6. Find a 6-digit number ABCDEF where ABCDEF and ABCDDEF both appear at different places before the Feynman point.

Digit positions are given by their position right of the decimal point.

[1] 0, 1 and 5 each repeat thrice at respective beginning positions 601, 153, and 179.
[2] 209 and 305 repeats once each at respective beginning positions 326 and 365.
[3] 23846 at beginning position 16 repeats at beginning position 579, and 60943 at beginning position 397 repeats at beginning position 551.
[4] In the third block, 56482 at beginning position 225 is ABCDE, with 5648 at beginning position 252 as ABCD, and 6482 at beginning position 277 as BCDE.
[5] 006606 at beginning position 307 is of the form AABBAB
[6] ABCDEF is 502841 at beginning position 158, ABCDDEF is 5028841 at beginning position 31
