One divided by eighty-one is equal to the first repeating number sequence
(.0123456790123456790...,) from which the eight is missing). Multiplying that number sequence by
eight is equal to the other sequence, (.0987654320987654320...), from which the one is missing).
The eight is missing from the first sequence. The one is missing from the second. Together the
missing numbers appear as eighty-one.
