What is the smallest (by value) self referential number?  Obviously it can't be 0 or 1.  


See http://brainden.com/...rential-number/ for the rules of self-referential numbers.

I like these self-refential number questions. They're interesting.

Since I'm guessing that there are only a finite number of self-referential numbers, another good question would be "what is the highest?"

In fact, an even better question would be "what are all of the self-referential numbers, and is there a pattern?"


BMAD, can I look forward to a new thread being opened up for these discussions?
