3n(n1)+1 ends in n (similar to the automorphic or curious numbers, 3n(n1)+1 is the nth hexagonal number rather than the nth square; see A003226).

COMMENTS

Given any number in the sequence, if you remove one or more digits from the beginning you always get another number in the sequence. This makes it easy to find higher terms  just take an existing term and try adding a digit (with perhaps additional 0's) at the beginning. For example, to 6251 prepend 5 to get a 5digit term, or 40 or 90 to get a 6digit term.

FORMULA

10^(d1) <= n < 10^d; 3n(n1)+1 == n mod 10^d


EXAMPLE

417 is in the sequence because if n=417, 3n(n1)+1=520417, which ends in 417.
