A085898


Group the natural numbers such that the product of the nth group is divisible by 2^n. (1), (2) (3,4), (5,6,7,8), (9,10,11,12,13,14,),(15,16,17,18),... Sequence contains highest power of 2 that divides the product of the terms of the nth group. a(n) =k, where A085895(n)/(2^k) is the smallest possible integer. By definition a(n) > or = n.
