What does find mean?

What does find mean? The nth upside down number can be found formulaically so calculating the fifty millionth is no harder than the five millionth.--Nigel Galloway (talk) 14:25, 14 February 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

find:, verb:, detect, discover, locate, observe If you are further confused maybe this will help. "The nth upside down number can be found formulaically so calculating the fifty millionth is no harder than the five millionth." Cool. Should be no problem then. 👍 --Thundergnat (talk) 15:49, 14 February 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Like Nigel Galloway said, it is easy to calculate the n.th number.
Just calculate the upper half in base 9, and add afterwards 1 to each digit
digits deltaCount           number
   1         1                   5
   2         1                  19
   3         9                 159
   4         9                1199
   5        81               11599
   6        81              111999
   7       729             1115999
