%N Number of iterations of n -> n + (product of nonzero digits of n) needed for the trajectory of n to join the trajectory of A063108.

%C Loomis has verified that all n up to 1000000 eventually join the trajectory of A063108.

%e a(3)=5 because the trajectory for 1 (Sequence A063108) starts

%e 1->2->4->8->16->22->26->38->62->74...

%e and the sequence for 3 starts

%e 3->6->12->14->18->26->38->62->74...

%e so the sequence beginning with 3 joins A063108 after 5 steps.
