|A Keith number is an n-digit integer N with the following property: If a Fibonacci-like sequence (in which each term in the sequence is the sum of the n previous terms) is formed, with the first n terms being the decimal digits of the number N, then N itself occurs as a term in the sequence. Keith numbers are all known up to 10^19. Can you find the next one? A recreational mathematics problem related to recurrent sequences and Diophantine equations.|
