COMMENTS

a(38) = -1 means no prime has yet been found; a(176) = -1 because it has been proved never to reach a prime. a(45) = 772 and a(56) = 18470 found by Richard Heylen; a(45) has been proved prime while a(56) is 3-PRP.

Number of times 1 has to be repeatedly appended to n to form a prime. - Lekraj Beedassy, Jun 01 2006

EXAMPLE

a(8)=2 because 8 and 81 are composite but 811 is prime.

PROG

(PARI) { aop(n) = local(c, k, stop); c=0; k=n; stop=500; if(isprime(n), return(0)); while(!isprime(k) && c<stop, k=k*10+1; c++); if(c<stop, return(c), return(-1)); }
