%N Least number k such that (1+1/k)^k yields n digits of e (A001113).

%e a(1) = 1 because (1+1/1)^1= 2 which equals e in the units place.

%e a(2) = 74 because (1+1/73)^73 = 2.69989... but (1+1/74)^74 = 2.700139...; thus 74 is the least number which will give e to 2 place accuracy, namely 2.7.

%t f = 0; f[n_] := f[n] = Block[{k = f[n - 1] + 1, d = FromDigits[{Take[ RealDigits[E, 10, 111][], n], 1}]}, While[(1 + 1/k)^k < d, k++ ]; k]; Table[ f[n], {n, 6}]
