**SraJMcGin**, Wednesday, November 14, 2007 at 10:26amWhy not look at some books you already have? Some of my books do not have numbers on some of the first pages, Title, dedication, publisher's note, first page and the numbering begins with page 4. Those pages without numbers are counted.

Other books begin with page 11, and some of the preceding pages are blank, or again have the title, dedication, etc.

Many of my reference books begin with Roman Numerals (I, II, III, IV, V, etc.) so you need to know if the word "digits" is including Roman Numerals.

I suspect it would be up to the Publishing Company exactly how a book is numbered! Also is that word counting page 29, for example, as 2 digits. That would mean that using 30 digits would mean only have 20 pages.

**Reiny**, Wednesday, November 14, 2007 at 10:54amThere were 1024 pages in the book, here is my reasoning

The number of single digit pages is 9, each one using 1 digit for a total of 9 digits each

the number of double digit pages is 90, (9x10), each page using 2 digits for a total number of digits of 180

the number of 3 digit pages is 900, (9x10x10), each page using 3 digits for a total of 2700 digits.

So at the end of page 999 we have 9+180+2700 or 2889 digits used.

So we still have 100 digits unaccounted for. The book must have run into the thousands in the page count, each of those pages using 4 digits.

So 100/4 = 25

So there must have been 25 pages starting with page 1000,

(from 1000 to 1024 is 25 pages)
