Annual Appeal: Today, Nov 11 2014, is the 4th anniversary of the launch of the new OEIS web site. 70,000 sequences have been added in these four years, all edited by volunteers. Please make a donation (tax deductible in the US) to help keep the OEIS running.

%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.
