 OFFSET 0,2 COMMENTS When n is odd, a(n) ends in 1, and when n is even, a(n) ends in 2, since 2^n is congruent to 1 mod 3 when n is odd and to 2 mod 3 when n is even. - Alonso del Arte Dec 11 2009 Sloane (1973) conjectured a(n) always has a 0 between the most and least significant digits if n > 15. This has been verified up to n = 10^5 (see A102483). - Alonso del Arte, Feb 20 2011 Erdos (1978) conjectured that for n > 8 a(n) has at least one 2 (see link to Terry Tao's blog). - Dmitry Kamenetsky, Jan 10 2017 REFERENCES Sloane, N.
