COMMENTS

Cooper and Kennedy (1993) proved that this sequence contains 20 terms. [From Sergio Pimentel, Sep 18 2008]

a(16) = 50757686696033684694106416498959861492*10^280 - 9 and a(17) = 14107593985876801556467795907102490773681*10^280 - 10. - Max Alekseyev, Apr 07 2013

EXAMPLE

a(3)=110 since 110 is divisible by 2, 111 is divisible by 3, 112 is divisible by 4 but 113 is not divisible by 5.
