Scientia MagnaVol. 4 (2008), No. 4, 1-3An equation involving the Smarandachefunction and its positive integer solutions1Minhui ZhuSchool of Science, Xi’an Polytechnic University, Xi’an, Shaanxi, P.R.ChinaAbstract For any positive integer n 2, the Smarandache function S(n) is defined as thesmallest positive integer m such that n m!. The main purpose of this paper is using theelementary method to study the solvability of the equation S(x) n, and give an exactcalculating formula for the number of all solutions of the equation.Keywords Smarandache function, equation, positive integer solution.§1. IntroductionFor any positive integer n, the famous Smarandache function S(n) is defined as the smallestpositive integer m such that n m!. That is, S(n) min{m : n m!, m N }. From theαk1 α2definition of S(n) one can easily deduce that if n pα1 p2 · · · pk be the factorization of n intoαiprime powers, then S(n) max {S(pi )}. From this formula we can get S(1) 1, S(2) 2,1 i kS(3) 3, S(4) 4, S(5) 5, S(6) 3, S(7) 7, S(8) 4, S(9) 6, S(10) 5, S(11) 11,S(12) 4, S(13) 13, S(14) 7, S(15) 5, S(16) 6, · · · . About the other elementaryproperties of S(n), many people had studied it, and obtained a series important results, seereferences [2], [3], [4] and [5]. For example, Dr. Xu Zhefeng [4] proved the following conclusion:Let P (n) denotes the largest prime divisor of n, then for any real number x 1, we have theasymptotic formula:Ã 3 !¡ 3X2ζ 32 x 2x22 O,(S(n) P (n)) 3 ln xln2 xn xwhere ζ(s) denotes the Riemann zeta-function.Charles Ashbacher [5] studied the solvability of the equation s(m) n!, and proved thatfor any positive integer n and prime p with p n, there are some integers k such that¡ S pk n!.In this paper, we using the elementary method to study the solvability of the equationS(p ) n (where p be a prime), and give an exact calculating formula for the number of allsolutions of the equation. That is, we shall prove the following two conclusions:k1 Thiswork is supported by the Shaanxi Provincial Education Department Foundation 07JK267.

2Minhui ZhuNo. 4Theorem 1. Let n 2 be a positive integer, p be any prime with pα k n. Then there areexact α positive integers k such that the equation¡ S pk n,where pα k n denotes that pα n and pα 1 † n.Theorem 2. Let n be a fixed integer with n 2. A(k) denotes the number of all solutionsof the equation S(x) k. Then we have the calculating formula¶nXYµn β(n, p)A(k) 1 ,p 1k 1whereYp ndenotes the product over all primes p less than or equal to n, β(n, p) denotes thep nsum of the base p digits of n.It is clear that from our Theorem 1 we may immediately deduce Charles Ashbacher’s resultin reference [5]. In fact, we can get following more accurate result:Corollary. Let n be a positive integer, then for any prime p with p n, there are exactn β(n, p)p 1¡ integers k such that the equation S pk n!, where β(n, p) is defined as in Theorem 2.Of course, our Corollary is also holds if p n. In this case, β(n, p) n, so that¡ n β(n, p) 0. Therefore, the equation S pk n! has no positive integer solution.p 1§2. Proof of the theoremsIn this section, we shall use the elementary method to complete the proof of our Theorems.First we prove Theorem 1. Let n 2 be an integer, for any prime p with pα k n, if α 0,¡ then (p, n) 1, and the equation S pk n has no positive integer solution k. Otherwise,p n, this contradiction with (p, n) 1. So the number of all positive integer solutions of the¡ equation S pk n is α 0. That is means, Theorem 1 is true if α 0. Now we assume thatα 1, and let pα(n,p) k n!. Then from the elementary number theory textbook (see [6], [7])and reference [8] we know that ·Xn β(n, p)nα(n, p) ,(1)ipp 1i 1where β(n, p) denotes the sum of the base p digits of n. That is, if n a1 pα1 a2 pα2 · · · as pαssXwith αs αs 1 · · · α1 0 and 1 ai p 1, i 1, 2, · · · , s, then β(n, p) αi .i 1Now for all positive integers k α(n, p) α 1, α(n, p) α 2, · · · , α(n, p) 1 and¡ α(n, p), we have S pk n. Since this time, from (1) we know that pk n!, but pk † (n 1)!,because pα(n,p) α k (n 1)!. From the definition of the Smarandache function S(n) we knowthat if k α(n, p) α, then pk (n 1)!, if k α(n, p), then pk † n!. Therefore, the equation¡ S pk n has exact α positive integer solutions. This proves Theorem 1.

Vol. 4An equation involving the Smarandache function and its positive integer solutions3Now we prove Theorem 2. For any positive k 2, if x satisfy the equation S(x) k, thenx k! and x†(k 1)!. So the number of all solutions of the equation S(x) k is equal toXX1 1 d(k!) d((k 1)!),d k!d (k 1)!where d(m) is the Dirichlet divisor function. Therefore,XXXA(k) A(1) A(k) 1 [d(k!) d((k 1)!] d(n!).k n2 k n2 k nNote that (1), from the definition and properties of d(n) we may immediately get¶XYµn β(n, p)A(k) d(n!) 1 ,p 1k nwhereYp ndenotes the product over all primes p less than or equal to n, β(n, p) denotes thep nsum of the base p digits of n.This completes the proof of Theorem 2.References[1] F.

The main purpose ofthis paper is using the elementary method to study the convergent properties of the infiniteseries involving the Smarandache kn-digital subsequence {Sk (n)} , and obtain some interestingconclusions.Keywords The Smarandache kn-digital sequence, infinite series, convergence.§1. IntroductionFor any positive integer n and any fixed positive integer k 2, the Smarandache kn-digitalsubsequence {Sk (n)} is defined as the numbers Sk (n), which can be partitioned into two groupssuch that the second is k times bigger than the first. For example, the Smarandache 3n-digitalsubsequence are: S3 (1) 13, S3 (2) 26, S3 (3) 39, S3 (4) 412, S3 (5) 515, S3 (6) 618,S3 (7) 721, S3 (8) 824, S3 (9) 927, S3 (10) 1030, S3 (11) 1133, S3 (12) 1236,S3 (13) 1339, S3 (14) 1442, S3 (15) 1545, S3 (16) 1648, S3 (17) 1751, S3 (18) 1854,S3 (19) 1957, S3 (20) 2060, S3 (21) 2163, S3 (22) 2266, · · · .The Smarandache 4n-digital subsequence are: S4 (1) 14, S4 (2) 28, S4 (3) 312,S4 (4) 416, S4 (5) 520, S4 (6) 624, S4 (7) 728, S4 (8) 832, S4 (9) 936, S4 (10) 1040,S4 (11) 1144, S4 (12) 1248, S4 (13) 1352, S4 (14) 1456, S4 (15) 1560, · · · .The Smarandache 5n-digital subsequence are: S5 (1) 15, S5 (2) 210, S5 (3) 315,S5 (4) 420, S5 (5) 525, S5 (6) 630, S5 (7) 735, S5 (8) 840, S5 (9) 945, S5 (10) 1050,S5 (11) 1155, S5 (12) 1260, S5 (13) 1365, S5 (14) 1470, S5 (15) 1575, · · · .These subsequences are proposed by Professor F.Smarandache, he also asked us to studythe properties of these subsequences. About these problems, it seems that none had studiedthem, at least we have not seen any related papers before. The main purpose of this paperis using the elementary method to study the convergent properties of one kind infinite seriesinvolving the Smarandache kn-digital subsequence, and prove the following conclusion:1Theorem. Let z be a real number. If z , then the infinite series2f (z, k) X1z (n)Sn 1 k(1)

Vol. 45On the Smarandache kn-digital subsequence1is convergent; If z , then the infinite series (1) is divergent.2In these Smarandache kn-digital subsequences, it is very hard to find a complete squarenumber. So we believe that the following conclusion is correct:Conjecture. There does not exist any complete square number in the Smarandachekn-digital subsequence, where k 3, 4, 5. That is, for any positive integer m, m2 / {Sk (n)},where k 3, 4, 5.§2. Proof of the theoremIn this section, we shall use the elementary method to complete the proof of our Theorem.We just prove that the theorem is holds for Smarandache 3n-digital subsequence. Similarly, wecan deduce that the theorem is also holds for any other positive integer k 4. For any elementS3 (a) in {S3 (n)}, let 3a bk bk 1 · · · b2 b1 , where 1 bk 9, 0 bi 9, i 1, 2, · · · , k 1.Then from the definition of the Smarandache 3n-digital subsequence we have¡ S3 (a) a · 10k 3 · a a · 10k 3 .(2)On the other hand, let a as as 1 · · · a2 a1 , where 1 as 9, 0 ai 9, i 1, 2, · · · , s 1.It is clear that if a 33· · 33}, then s k; If a 33 ·{z· · 34}, then s k 1.
