Here’s the number 26417 in a 1←10 machine. (Is it okay if I write numbers rather than draw dots?)
Now let’s perform the explosions, one at a time. (We’ll need an extra box to the left.)
Since 2 groups of ten explode to give 2 dots one place to the left, and 6 groups of ten explode to give 6 dots one place to the left, and 4 groups of ten 4 dots one place to the left, and so on, none of the digits we see ever change. In fact, the net effect we see is all digits “shifting” one place to the left and leaving zero dots in the ones place.
Indeed it looks like we just tacked on a zero to the right end of 26417. (But this is really because of a whole lot of explosions.)
