Problem 55370. Easy Sequences 69: Radix Economy of Factorials
The Radix Economy of a number in a particular base is the number of digits needed to express it in that base, multiplied by the base. In functional form we write: , where E is the radix econony, b and N, are the base and number, respectively, and , is the number of digits of the base-b representation of N.
For example, if and , then the radix economy is :
Given a base b, and an integer n, calculate , for .
For example, if and , we have:
NOTE: As it is, this problem is quite simple. In fact, a solution is already given for small values of b and n. Therefore, to make it a bit interesting, some built-in functions are disabled.
