Purpose of request

Can you explain the purpose for this request?
Looks like an assignment or test of some form.

it's not an assignment... just an interest to create possible number combination

I don't follow what you're after....
Do you just want to create a random 6 digit number (1 - 999999)?
Not sure what this summation formula supposed to do either...
Please elaborate with example(s) if possible

Imagine that you have 10 separate 1's to add to your number. Pick ten numbers from one to five, and add one to each of those digits.

Moderator's Comments:
Mod Comment This is a very interesting problem, but:

1. it has nothing to do with UNIX or UNIX tools. It is just an algorithmic challenge. This wouldn't be so bad on itself, but see below.

2. You claimed that this is not homework and you are doing it just out of interest. Still, in this case you would have at least undertaken some thinking on how to solve it and presented them here along with the problem statement. What is the point in trying to solve puzzles if your only genuine contribution is to ask other people to solve it for you?

3. If this would have at least a remote real-world impact you would have limited the tools - languages, platforms, ... in some way. that you didn't reinforces my point that is problem was not posed upon you by yourself but by outside request - homework, take-home question in a job interview or the like - to be precise. It would be understandable for a professor/possibly hiring company/... to test your algorithmic skills by not limiting to any platform or language environment, but it is highly unlikely for you not to have any personal preference at all. For what is worth, you would have to understand the solution once it is presented to you and this is possible only with a language at least remotely known by you. What would you have done would anyone have written and posted a program in FORTH, APL2, ALGOL68 or another outlandish language, hm?

As long as you can't disprove my suspicion i close this thread for most probably being homework. Open a thread in the homework forum with the correct identification necessary there.

All the others: please refrain from providing solutions to dubious (albeit concededly interesting) problems. We have a "homework rule" in place for a reason and we do not want to encourage anybody breaking it.
