The next number is the product of the digits of the previous
number.
iii.

Stop when you get to a one-digit number.
The sequence above has length 4. (It has 4 terms.)
Find the only two-digit number which gives a sequence of length 5.
Hint: the last term of the sequence is 8.

5. The first digit of a six-digit number is 1. If the 1 is shifted to the other
end, and the new six digit number is three times bigger than the old
one, what was the old number?
